Green Things

Isn't there something therapeutic about green growing things? I love seeing the tender little plants pop out of the ground. I think it is also wonderful education for our city kids! This is our first garden and they are all into it. Enjoy some of our pictures:

I think this is watermelon (or is it cucumber?)

Imagination Station

I love that my children have good imaginations... Especially my eldest child. He is always coming up with the most interesting things. Here is a fort he designed out of plywood and pavers and sheets and towels! Love it

Our most recent project is the GARDEN! Here is Brendan tilling it...we then added compost and cow poopoo and then topsoil. Our soil is incredibly sandy here, so the topsoil is working out great. We already have little green things sprouting out! This is our first attempt at a garden, so we are pretty excited! I think it is very good for the kids to see things grow! More pictures to come!
