Where to begin? I will give you a quick glimpse of our summer that has just flown by!
We spent the first part of May preparing our backyard flower bed to become the garden. There were lots of things growing voluntarily in that spot already so we had lots of root pulling. None of it was very attractive and this is our only sunny spot to put in a garden. We finally had everything ready to go so E and I went to the local greenhouse to get our plants. (We started too late to buy seeds this year but maybe next year we'll be ready.) We planted peppers, basil and tomoatoes for Daddy, zuchinni and squash and cucumbers for me and strawberries for E.
After much watering our little garden went from this to...
our first pick! We have been enjoying the fresh veggies. Unfortunately, the squash plant is no longer with us. The horrible squash bugs found us and within 2 days killed this lovely plant. :( Thankfully the monster that we call the zucchini plant is still thriving.
E shows off some of the peppers for Daddy.
The kids are growing like crazy too. They are finally to a stage where they are able to do more together. It is so sweet to see them playing. But at times it is not so sweet. I had a glimpse into the future yesterday when K grabbed C's hand and led him down the hallway to go play. Alert instantly went off in my head so I followed. Sure enough K had opened the door to our bedroom and was taking C into the "forbidden zone." Jumping on our bed or sliding down the sunken tub are just to tempting to stay away from at this age!
K is full of life and likes to push the limits.
E is the pleaser and our sensitive heart.
C is full of joy. Rarely do you catch him without a smile.
More to come... the dryer just stopped so it's time to fold clothes.
