|This beauty opened up this week in our backyard|
Poor Kyla came down with a fever, cough, and runny nose on Saturday afternoon - which canceled the rest of our weekend plans. So instead of serving at the Refuge (homeless dinner and church service), going to church, and Kyla's friend Zoe's birthday party - we snuggled, watched shows, and painted nails. She is still sick, but slowly getting better.
The rest of last week was filled with fun and dirt!
Keanan completed the first week of 2nd grade and did a great job! He really enjoyed learning about the Vikings (we are studying US history). The Bible portion of second grade is learning about the names of Jesus - so this last week Keanan and Kyla learned about the meaning of their names:
Kyla was on V for vegetable in kindergarten this week so we planted our own vegetable garden! I ordered the "Big Bag Bed" from Amazon - a big one for me and 2 little ones for the kids. Super easy - unfold the fabric bag, fill with dirt, plant seeds! We also used bricks to make a garden bed along the back fence. All said in done, I ended up moving 16 1.5 cubic feet bags of dirt on Friday! We planted: artichoke, beans, spinach, carrots, nasturtiums, corn, tomatoes, onions, garlic, lettuce, kale, chard, arugula, pumpkin, rosemary & lavender! Most of these were thanks to our gardening expert friend Vanessa :)
Next weekend is the Jr. First Lego League Expo at Google! Keanan and his team are ready and excited to share their model of the lunar rover and all they have learned.
