A week later...

Actually yesterday was a week since the last post on our garden, but hey, life got in the way last night and I didn't have time to post.  The photos were, though, taken a week later.  There's so much growth! 

John has been watering our plants at night, since apparently I haven't been watering them enough in the morning.  They were wilting and browning and frankly, I had no idea why.  After a ton more water they perked right up! 

Both kids have watering cans, however after they spill most of it on the dirt, and literally pour the rest out on the garden it's time for a refill.  The whole process of watering the garden can take forever sometimes, as we are constantly refilling their cans.  But the sheer excitement they are getting from watching the plants spring up is very worth it.

Abby got some new glasses yesterday in the mail from Grandma...they are the wrap around the head kind.  She absolutely loves them, and wore them even as I was getting her pjs on.  They, however, do not stay on her head, as they constantly fall over her ears, so I think the regular style sunglasses might be in order.  John and I sure get a lot of laughs from that gal - between her Bermuda-style shorts, froggie rain boots, and sunglasses that wouldn't stay on she looked like a mother-less child!  BUT...she insisted on both the boots and glasses, so...we went with it.  She definitely has her own style!

The last few nights after we all water the garden John has been playing tee-ball with William.  Abby will not be left out, and jumped at the opportunity for an at-bat.  William gladly plays the outfield, and he's got quite the arm, if I say so myself!
