Gardening

I have never done any gardening in my life. For a while now I've been wanting to make my own herb garden. Every year I say I am going to do it but I just never start it. So today I decided to do it. I went to Super Target they had some pots, and seeds for a dollar. I also got some dirt and gardening gloves for the kids and myself. I thought it would be a great thing to do with the kids. I mean what kid doesn't like to play with dirt and water. I gave them each a pot and a packet of seeds. We put some cornflower and baby breath seeds in both pots. I have no idea how this might turn out. I hope that something might grow by mothers day because that is what I am planning on giving my mother and mother in law as presents from the kids. Monkey doodle was so happy to do this activity. He even put his gardening gloves on. When we were done he won't let Gaby touch the pots. Also every hour after that he would ask if the flowers had grown already. I need to find a lot more hands on activities for him. He really does enjoy them. I have also decided that I will put him in piano lessons. I just have to find a place that will take him. Some of the instructors don't take kids under the age of 5. I know that it might seem that he is to young but he really does LOVE music and instruments. He can name a lot of the instruments. I don't want to push him but I do want to expose him to many activities. At the end of the year he can join the City's T-Ball and soccer teams, so we are going to try those out too.

I was only able to take one picture because my battery died.

Life is getting back to normal little by little. I just take it day by day.
