When everything is astonishing, nothing is astonishing; 
this is how the world is to children.
-Antone Rivaroli

Mount Rushmore is astonishing for all ages!

Maaret is next.

The more help a person has in his garden,
the less it belongs to him.
-William H. Davis

We are trying square foot gardening this year.   We planted by seed and stuff is popping up all over the place.  (It's pretty exciting) Clarke and Garrett have been my big helpers!   They have helped put dirt in the boxes, cut wire, plant and now water.  I'm hoping with our efforts, we will harvest a few veggies this summer!

Next is Amber.

Speak the truth even if your voice shakes.
-Maggie Kuhn

This quote is great advice for my son Parker.  (Or any person) As a teenager especially, it's hard to stand up for what you believe in and speak the truth.  I believe that if you can stand up for yourself and speak the truth, life will be that much better!

Amber in Alaska is next.

Birthday Boy

I am so far behind on blogging!  Garrett turned 8 in April.  Oops…

All he wanted to do was go golfing.

He brought Hailey with.

Hailey has never golfed, and Garrett maybe has once. :)

Our cute 8 year old.

After golfing, we had a little birthday party.  He had a different friend over for this.

Love this one.

He received these beautiful teeth as a gift. 

They were quite entertaining as you can see!

Don't put off for tomorrow what you can to today,
because if you enjoy it today you can do it again tomorrow.

Head on over to Amber in Alaska.

Hike with Clarke

A little hike with Clarke around Madaris, on a cloudy spring day.  

I took a few selfies with my baby boy.  This is the last year with him at home part time. :-( 
No more little outings like this one.
