Visiting the Peterka's on their Urban Farm

welcome sign outside their door

My brother and his family live in Shoreline, WA (just north of Seattle) on their urban farm.  They have all kinds of beautiful crops, two beehives and even chickens!

(Forgive my crappy photos, I didn't bring the big fancy camera, so these are just iPhone photos!)

Charlie and I had a fantastic time listening to a mini concert, eating fresh eggs and veggies from their yard and catching up on life.

I heard all about their busy schedule of homeschooling activities and socialising and they asked me all about living in London.  Unfortunately we didn't get to see Meghan, but we did get to hear a bit about what she's up to these days as well.

of course Charlie convinced them to read her some books

Quote of the day:

"People say the problem with homeschooling is the socialisation and I say, 'Yeah!  I know!  We've got to stop doing so much of it!'"  -Brian

My niece and nephew, Devon and Zeth, are both bright and multitalented.  Here is a snippet of a song they sang for us during our visit:

This last video is of Charlie meeting one of the chickens.  She got such a kick out of them! The video ends with a shot of the busy beehive:
