Farming, Fannies & Fun!

Cody's class has been learning about gardens and how flowers grow from seeds. Here is a picture from his class...at the bottom it says: Young Threes How Our Garden Grows! They got to make each phase of the plants growth: seeds, roots, stems, flowers, rain and sun.

Inspired by his garden picture, we decided to let Cody & Abby plant some things of their own. Today we planted basil, rosemary and peppers. In a few weeks, we will transplant them to our back porch garden. By the way, Clay custom built our plant holders...very nice!

Cody really got into the planting of the seeds. Abby was more interested in playing in the dirt and going outside to play in the water. I included a few pics of her playing on the back porch..she was in her bathing suit for a while, but then opted for skinny dipping. They played in their new pool and then laid down and watched TV together. They love spending time together, even if they are fighting most of the time. It was cute to capture them together and not fussing for once.

All in all, it was a great day of family fun. I'll be sure to post updates of the plants as they grow.

Easter

The kids had fun at Grandad and Mamaw's house. Martha Ann let the kids do their annual Easter egg hunt in the yard. Cody closed his eyes as we hid the eggs, then he ran around gathering as many as he could find. I got one picture of Uncle Bill holding all of the eggs. I don't think he's ever had a pcture taken with his eyes open...so this one was another one for the books. Funny!







The Thorn


After 12 weeks of rehearsals, The Thorn cast & crew put on 12 sold-out performances at Seacoast Church from April 1 -11th. I am so proud of how well everyone worked together to make this one of the best Easter productions ever performed. The impact that this has had on our church, our community and beyond, will not be fully known, but will definitely be a catalyst to bigger & better things for many of the people who were involved in this epic production. I am honored to have been a part of The Thorn and I'm thankful for all of the new friendships within the cast & crew. Only 8 months until we start work on our 2010 Thorn production! Like the photos? Many of these pictures were taken by Gary McElveen...check out more here!
