The kids were busy helping Nana plant the garden.
Mia planted this tomato plant...
and was so proud if it. I didn't capture the celebration but she clapped and exclaimed, "YAY!"
Sam's big job was sorting all the tools and small gardening equipment. He mostly threw things around, but he stayed busy.
Elvis is taking gardening quite serious in this shot.
Since we moved in a few short days ago, my mom has made about 10 of these ten grain loaves of bread (no all consumed by us). We are all in love with it. We eat it for sandwiches, with butter, jelly, apple butter, honey, and just plain' ol sliced up. Although, there is nothing plain about this bread. It is super tasty.
On the topic of homemade goodness- this was picked fresh and consumed last night.
No one can get their fill of the ten grain!
Yesterday was an especially perfect day! We got a lot done, and still made time for fun. My sis Nat came up and we went on a walk with my dad, Mia, and Jense rode his bike. The temperature was perfect...maybe a little on the hot side, but I loved the feeling of the warmth all day long. John, my sister, and I loaded up the kids and went for a drive to see how the town has changed. It has definitely changed, but still has so much charm. We pointed out the places we lived before my dad built this house. I only have a few memories from before living here.
We are off to a great start here! My parents are fabulous and gracious to let us come and take over 4 of their bedrooms. They had to move out sooooo much stuff! I owe them big time. My favorite thing about yesterday was sitting down to a meal that was all fresh. We had fish that my dad caught that morning, asparagus from the garden, and delicious homemade bread. I could definitely get used to more days like this!
