No Boo Boo Day
Sylvia notices that there have been a lot of bumps, bruises, scratches and scrapes lately — what with Martin riding his two wheeler bike and Sylvia working with rocks and sticks. So Daddy proposes they have a "No boo boo" day where "safety first" is the goal of the day. The day he chooses, however, is the day they decide to build two raised garden beds. Can they do all the necessary hard work without a single boo boo?
