If You Can't Reach Us, We're Outside....

It's that time of year again! The time of year where where Tired Mom spends several hours a day on yard work and gardening while the kids play (and sometimes help). We have no answering machine, so the phone just rings and rings when we are outside. 

The lettuce bed is already overflowing, the squash seedlings have popped up, and the little tomato plants are all planted. The bell pepper seedlings that were started indoors are starting to harden off outside. The kids are working on some marigold and sunflowers they are growing from seed (marigolds also keep away harmful insects, along with scattering orange peels and planting some lavender).

This was a fun pic that Paranoid Dad took. Danger Boy may be making the point that yard work is MURDER!


 Kid Catastrophe is showing off the mask she made during a library craft day. We are also going to be doing the Library Reading Program again this year.
Miss Mayhem begs to play outside all the time, so there will be no complaints about our outdoor lifestyle. She screams "TOY!" and points at the front yard every time I try to make her come inside from a car ride somewhere before going outside. The older kids are most helpful by playing with Miss Mayhem as she wanders all over the yard. We will check in when we can, but if we don't it's because we are outside!
