This weekend our family planted some flower beds for the kids. They had so much fun. It is so neat to watch them and how much they love their flowers. Every day they want to water them, of course it has been raining since we planted them so it hasn't been needed. I know they can't wait for that magic day when the flowers actually need to be watered.
I love sharing this experience with my kids. Gardening is something that runs in my family. My mother and grandmother and great grandmother (not to mention, aunts and unlces galore) have all been master gardeners. I feel blessed to share the tradition with my beautiful kids.
