Leuze Garden May 2009

23 May

We have been lucky with all the early warm weather.  The garden is going along just great which is good because the new baby will be here any day now and I’m not sure how much time I will have to get out there.  As of now everything is planted, weeded and watered.  Almost time to start harvesting lettuce!  Josh is extra-proud of his potato patch.  Those plants have really taken off!

Andrew’s Special Delivery

22 May

Andrew has had his eye on a new toy for quite some time.  We told him he would have to save up for it and then we could order it online.  He patiently waited for 7 days and today it arrived via UPS.  He sure was excited to find the box laying on the deck by the front door!  He has been wanting the Lego recycling truck for quite a while and now he has it.  Hopefully he learned about the payoff of saving for something big.  I know I never had the patience to save when I was a kid.  Brian did though and I was always jealous when he would go to Coast to Coast or Ben Franklin and buy something fancy!

Mommy-Son Time with Andrew

8 May

I’m trying to spend as much time as I can with Andrew before the new baby gets here (which could be any day).  It’s been a little difficult since I haven’t been feeling too good and Andrew has been going to grandma’s house quite a bit.  We did manage to spend time in the garden this week though and have some “art time” this morning.
