We found these cute little planters at Tractor Supply so we let Garrett and Avery each pick one out.  Avery picked sunflowers and Garrett picked cucumber.  Unfortunately, Garrett’s pot was broken and he got parsley seeds instead of cucumber.  I gave him half of Avery’s seeds and a different pot that we had.  I planted some spinach along with them.

About a week later, we have some sprouts!

The kids have had a lot of fun with this project!  I hope it’s going to get them excited about the big garden this summer!

UPS trucks are kind of like bread trucks.  Only UPS trucks bring presents.


Reading stories:

Me:  Avery, where is the green tractor.

Garrett:  There’s the New Holland sky (blue).


Helping fold laundry:

This guy is really fall (small).  Why is this guy so fall?


Me:  I like you guys.

Garrett:  I like you too.

Me:  I’m a lucky mama.

Garrett:  Yes, you are.


 Garrett:  Girls aren’t humans.

Me, about to get mad:  Oh yeah?
Garrett: Yeah, they’re ladies.
I did inform him that girls ARE human, also!
When Avery gets bigger her job is going to hatch chicks and my job it going to hatch honey.
