Since my first son, Caillou, was born, I have had a fascination with growing a garden. It started with a pumpkin seed and a couple of strawberry plants when I lived on Ivy street. And then when I lived in our upstairs apartment, there were dozens of potted plants, a wading pool filled with soil and seedlings, and a warm afternoon 8 months pregnant with Jasper in which I hauled 170 pounds of potting soil bag by bag up my stairs to the balcony. And now, we are blessed to be renting a cute little home with a wonderful yard. It has been so much fun growing things with my little ones. Caillou and Jasper love to spend time in the garden, find little yummys to eat... a red ripe strawberry, a corn on the cob, sugar snap peas, a handful of chubby little carrots. My mama got some darling Sesame Street seed starters for the boys from Lowe's. They had so much fun arranging the little pots, putting the dirt tablets in - watering and watching them expand, burying the seeds, putting stickers on the little wooden stick plant markers. We have them all lined up in our window sill, watching them sprout, waitng for them to become big enough to add to our garden.
Homeschooling Mama of 3 rowdy little boys...so far... baby #4 on the way! Self proclaimed eccentric, free-spirited, hillbilly hippie chick! I like to sew it, grow it, make it, and bake it... doing my best to live a homemade, handmade life! Happiness is... giggling children, snuggly babies, cupcakes, polkadots, good old Golden books, ice cream cones, holidays, vintagey goodness, clothes lines and crisp aprons, merry go rounds, gnome houses, red sneakers and crinoline skirts, oh yes... and a nifty pair of rose colored glasses.
