|I popped around the corner and it was happening. Hans has been growing his little sapling in a jar for quite some time now and Zacharie decided that today was the day for it's roots to spread out. Ethan shared their excitement and all three became gardeners. Just like that.|
|But one tree wasn't enough. They found a volunteer tree growing right next to the house so all three played tug-a-war, them against it. They won with a hoot-and-a-hollar, in a pile on the cement. |
With tree and partial root in hand they merrily proceeded to make another hole for it too.
|Here it is. Hans' little tree. They even gave it a little shade with the upside down flower. |
Lord, bless these boys and grow this up to be a tree.
A great big one that reminds them of Your great kindness.
|Makayla & I made some Eastery-cupcakes for our neighbors. Makayla doesn't really enjoy the kitchen yet unless we're doing something creative like this. I like creating with her. |
I'd never dyed coconut until now. I always assumed that was for old people. ;)
|What's with the anticipation of waiting dye? It's fun every year. |
The possibilities are so happy.
|They got 6 eggs each...with 3 ways to decorate them. |
Here are four fantastic kids.
|Ethan is the only half naked one...all of the time.|
|Our kids have always loved the rain|
|The minute the drops accelerate that look comes over their faces.|
|The look that invites and bids the other one to just jump in.|
|I always try to groan out a, "Guys - don't get all wet. Okay?" I don't even know why it really matters. |
I guess it feels more motherly to caution against what could be "messy" or a potential sprained ankle.
|Ethan is an enthusiastic person.|
|...and Makayla didn't miss the opportunity to snap a few.|
|I mean really. Look at the pay off!|
