From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Tom meets the Wallaces during his first morning in Weedpatch. They are an incredibly warm and welcoming family (a father and a son), and they share their breakfast with Tom. Timothy and Wilkie help Tom find five days of work, digging a ditch for Mr. Thomas. Tom and Wilkie are good friends during the month Tom lives in Weedpatch.
