The Garden

Chris and I are beyond excited about our garden. We built the raised boxes and filled them with topsoil and compost. We built a fence around them so the deer don't destroy it. Then our friend Justin drew up a blueprint of where to plant all of the stuff I picked out. He knows a lot about small, raised bed gardens. I can't help myself, I go check the growing progress at least twice a day.

Weeds don't stand a chance Two pots of strawberry plants for Jax. 3 different kinds of tomatoes, zucchini, watermelons, herbs and a couple different peppers
72 corn plants, cucumbers, sweet peas, tomatoes, more peppers and squash 1 Mandarin, 2 blackberries, 1 blueberry and and a clementine that Jax and I started from seed 3 years ago.

I will update as the garden grows!!!! ;)

It is a small world!

First of all, I have to brag on Jax! Baseball is definately in full swing around here! He had a game last night and tonight. He always hits the ball really well but both nights he got a HOMERUN!!!! He is so happy! He was not so thrilled about me trying to take a quick picture though. You can see his AWESOME coach Jason in the background. That guy is so great!!! Jason played college baseball and he loves teaching the kids. They are throddling the competition. It is kind of fun being on a winning team this year.
Now to the "it's a small world part!" I am sitting in the bleachers talking to another mom on our team, and one topic leads to another, when I find out her parents live at Riley Farm. Her parents used to live in Deerwoods. Her cousins are Jason and Patrick Ferguson (twins that were in my class)!!!! Are you kidding me????

Jax lost one of his top front teeth! He was smiling at us when we picked him up from school last week, and he looked so funny! He said he bit down on his corndog and it came out! It is making him talk funny too!

It has been a month.........

since I posted last!! Sorry!! I have been very busy working inside the house and out. Baseball is in full swing too. I am going to try and post every day this week to catch you all up.

The boys are on spring break this week. We woke up to pouring down rain. It poured for about an hour. Good for the plants but not for puppy feet!!! Naturally, with the boys home all day, I have been cleaning up messes non stop. I had already washed Camo's feet three times today when I let the three of them go outside for a while. I had had about 30 minutes of peace and quiet when I went to check on them. I had heard them giggling and thought I should see what they were doing? I saw Camo covered in mud! It was dripping off of his face! Chris wasn't home to carry him to the shower! He weighs 70 pounds so I can't pick him up anymore. I had a great idea and I ran to the laundry room and grabbed 4 socks that had lost their mate. It worked! AND the boys gave him a shower!
