The perfect day





Yesterday was one of my favorite days. . .why you might ask because I got to plant my flowers!  I don't know if it's the farm girl in me or what but I LOVE getting my hands in the dirt, the sun was so nice and hot yesterday ( as long as I stayed out of the wind) and I had my favorite little gardeners as helpers. Jonah loves it and stayed with me until the end. Lydia decided after the first flower she didn't really want to get her hands dirty. It was more fun for her to ride bike and play with her neighbor friend. Some of my favorite quotes of the day:

Jonah looks at me with this uncertain look and says,"Mom can I get dirty?" I said, " Of course"
He took his shoes off and walked in the soft dirt and then kept squishing it in his hands,

 "I just love the feel of dirt!"

When I explained to Jonah that when we plant the pots we get to be 'artists' with the flowers he said," You mean like expert on guitar hero!"

"Grow, grow grow little flowers!"

I saw the title to this and the dirty hands pictures and said to myself Valerie planted her flowers. Do I know you or what?? I see there's a mystery cyber man in your world you better tell your superhero hubby to watch out!! I got my pansies planted today with only a "little" help...then they left to do some other project. Ok well they lost interest and went to swing on the new 'wingset' so my Tessa calls it. We too had a great weekend, I'll have to tell you all about it soon (road trip to St Paul!!) we got to see Tessa's new cousin, Baby Loofsie. How's that for a Tessaism? (baby Ruthie). Anyway talk to you soon, Praying always for you!! Love Misty

I LOVE the black & whites!! The one of Lydia made me smile and the one of the dirt & the hands made me think "This is a perfect Valerie picture!"
