Since we have been here sewing has been very darn little because we have been outside most of the time. The kids love playing outside and love, love to help grandma and grandpa in the garden. The have helped pick and help plant many things. Prince C was helping until we realized that he was trying to eat everything he was picking so now he has to sit in the stroller as the bigger ones help.
Mom puts up a ton of veggies from the garden so as the wee ones have been picking we have been canning. It reminds me of when I was little. : ) In one day we put up 36 jars of salsa plus about 20 of grape jelly. I wish I took a picture of Sweet pea picking these with grandpa, she had such a blast with these! You should have seen her chasing grandpa across the yard so that he wouldn't start without her. She even helped smush the grapes to make the jelly. (She did give up fairly quickly on this part thought)
These are the green beans, the boys favorite vegetable to pick. If only we could get them to eat them now.
I love how gardening helps the kids work together as a team. This is about the only time all five of them are doing something together as a big group. It's so cute.
To make things even better, grandpa has a great riding lawn mower with this way cool wagon. Yes, the kids are enjoying this! After grandpa took them for a hour ride daddy took over until sunset. (If you look closely you can even see little Prince C in there.)
I think moving out here has done the kids a world of good, the older boys love their new school and already have started making new friends. Prince C is becoming more of a toddler than a baby. This makes me so sad. Sweet pea has been a grandpa's shadow. Yep, we have been loving the last part of our summer.
