this spring break. In fact, we’ve cleaned a few rooms I needed cleaned/organized. I created “the fun room” for the kids by moving stuff around and by giving away some of the stuff we no longer need.
But perhaps most importantly, we prepared the garden for spring (I mean real spring, not the spring we are currently witnessing with snow and frigid temps-grr).
This will be the first year for the garden. Last year I had Zach set up old railroad ties for some raised beds but then I found out we’d be traveling to bring home the boys during summer and I just didn’t want to put anything more on my plate.
So we had to start from scratch.
My favorite, most amazing hubby keeps it classy even in the midst of physical labor.
I do too, obviously, just some good old fashioned basketball shorts and cowboy boots.
With the help of “Prancer” from camp, we were able to prepare both raised beds. Next week we’ll take some soil that’s been mixed with horse
shit manure and fill in the rest of the beds. Very exciting stuff!
It did come at a price, though. A branch of some sort scratched my eye (can I also blame that for the wrinkles, freckles and wayward eyebrows?) Serious stuff, right? 😉
Zach claims he got scratched on the finger…though I’m pretty sure he just used it as an excuse to flip me off…tough to say.
Don’t let us fool you, we’ve been having plenty of play time. We (with my mom) even took the kids bowling for the first time. Oh yeah, and Zach cut Trysten’s hair. A zig zag mohawk. My girl Chrissy dyed it blue too. Well, why not?
I seriously love these people.
I never want spring break to end. Never. Ever. Love having all my babes home.
