Friday afternoon the boys from the hood (i.e. Rob, Will, and Taylor) got started on our little garden...and it turned out to be a rather LARGE garden! I am loving the smell of the freshly tilled dirt. The soil looks very rich and soft -- I have a feeling we're going to have some pretty amazing tomatoes -- yum! It's going to be
Anyway, here is a glimpse our little garden spot --
The first line of dirt -- much goodness is going to come from this dirt....
...I have developed a love/hate relationship with dirt. I may do a post later on what I love and hate about it...
I guess since I live with
two three boys, I better get used to having it around.
All rowed up...all I need now are these!
And this is my garden basket...
...perfect for lots of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers
(and I want to try making pickles since the bbs LOVE pickles)
I got the above basket at The Fresh Market -- most heavenly grocery store, thank goodness it isn't in our little town or Rob and I would be in big big trouble!
...now all we need is the seed!
Reed says he wants okra, tomatoes, corn, squash, peas, butterbeans, and watermelon -- maybe it's good that the "little" garden spot turned out to be a little bigger than we were expecting.
And while Will was tilling the garden on Friday, the BBs were doing some fishing from their "boat." Y'all didn't know we had a lake in our backyard too, did you? Reed said, "Daddy, will you move the boat to the middle of the lake, I think the fish are biting." He was pointing to the trailer, and Rob said, "Sure, I want to see you cast it out there and catch us some fish." Practice makes perfect!
Reed -- "hooking up the boat to the dock"
Saturday afternoon we took the BBs to the State baseball game and we actually made it through the 5th inning -- with a almost 2 year old and almost 4 year old and lots of "nandy" they enjoyed the game. Reed loved it that there was a player named Luke. I am so mad at myself for forgetting my camera...even though we didn't win, we had a great time at Dudy Noble.
Anyway, on our way home, Rob and I realized that we had forgotten "bapi" -- Luke screamed all the way home -- I am now having mini panic attacks every time I think about taking the "bapi" away -- ugh!
I will be very glad when the Easter candy is gone -- my children are seriously junkies...
A rare, sweet moment from Sunday afternoon...
I ask Reed everyday, "Did you have a good day at school?"
Me: "Who did you play with?"
Reed: "Luke, he's my best friend (inside I am such the proud mother), "but today I had to go sit in time out because I hit him in the head with a shovel." -- proud moment...vanished.
Brotherly love...I guess that too is a love/hate relationship...
with these two little BBs my prayer that it will always be more love than hate!
