Church Garden

_MG_4990.jpgYesterday we went to church to work on our garden. Our church has been incredibly kind to let us plant a very large garden on their property. That's my Lutheran Stud sitting on his keister going through seeds.

_MG_4983.jpgThe kids searched for grasshoppers and other creatures.
_MG_5009.jpgThey also played on the playground.
_MG_5019.jpgThe monkey bars have become quite fun for the older children._MG_5013.jpgThey opened a pretend store as well.
_MG_5027.jpgThis kid was happy with just with a cup. . . and a ton of rocks. She just kept filling her cup and dumping it out over and over and over again.
_MG_5073.jpgI Heart Faces has a shadow theme this week, so I thought I'd practice up a little. That's me multitasking. I'm pushing Elizabeth on the swing while reading the current issue of The Lutheran Witness. It's a good issue.  You should check it out. 
_MG_5072.jpgJared tilled the ground with this big power horse of a tiller.
_MG_5000.jpgPeas! We planted some peas. 
_MG_5074.jpgThe kids are always intrigued when it comes to gardening. Gadgets and tools are fun toys to them.  I think we ended up planting carrots, peas, lettuce, spinach, corn, onions, garlic, and some tomatoes. We'll see if it grows!  Let the fun begin.

So, let me get this straight. Jared does all the work, and you and the kids get to play? Sounds like a plan to me!

These are great pictures. I love the lighting and coloring. I am so anxious to get going on my garden.
