Life and growth

March 18th, 2010

Six dozen pansy plants, and Jane can’t wait to get started! Here comes the Twin Squad to our aid! Tromp, tromp, tromp…

James taking his task very seriously…

Ooooops, how’d that boot come off? (Joy, my pg-belly-pic-loving friend, will this one suffice? Kindly overlook the squint-lol!)

Jane will be the boss of this annual project someday. She takes after her mama…

Many little hands to help…

John Michael taking time to stop and smell the flowers…

Laura started the planting process…

Can we keep ’em? They’d be really good for…um…um…

Sweeter Peter…

Our photographer moved on to other pursuits after this, but we did get all seventy-two plants in and the flower bed cleaned out! You didn’t miss anything but the increasing mud-ification of the team! The bed doesn’t exactly look pretty yet, but give it a month or so and it will be glorious. We plant in faith. :)

Share it!

    Susanna! The first thing out of my mouth on seeing the first pic was “Oh, look at Susanna’s beautiful belly!” before I got to the comment by you about it! LOL! You’re GORGEOUS!

    And I hope you’ll post some of those glorious flower pics in a month or so!

    I think it’s amazing that you get everyone ready and take them out in the mud – all I can see is the cleanup afterwards. What a fun mama you are!

    Everything you’ve planted and are growing is beautiful and I’m looking forward to watching both the children and the flowers grow!

    Looks like you had a lot of fun and got a lot done also! You have a beautiful family Susanna and even though I don’t comment often, your posts bless me and often make me cry. Continuing in daily prayer for Sweet Verity, you and your family as you travel this road.

    Thank you, Shannon, for praying for us!

    Joy, I have to respond to this:

    “I think it’s amazing that you get everyone ready and take them out in the mud – all I can see is the cleanup afterwards. What a fun mama you are!”

    We live on 3 acres on a back road, and every day there’s a possibility for the children to be outside, that’s where they are. All the little ones need in order to go out is a big brother or sister to keep an eye on them. And lots of laundry is a normal part of life here. I don’t want to accept credit for what I don’t deserve!

    Me too!

    It's so beautiful there! We had snow yesterday. Oh well, not too much longer and we'll be tromping out there in the garden too! :) Thanks for the sharing!

    That comment was the DAY after we had 4 of ours covered head to toe after finding a mud puddle in the back yard (after Daddy said, “Stay off the grass.” (They did much better obeying yesterday after the lesson learned that day. Also a good lesson on sin being fun “during” but not “after” and how Jesus cleanses us.) Anyway, saw your pics the very next day so it was good timing!

    That IS a neat object lesson, Joy!
