Man, Sadie has been loving all the time she has with her cousins lately! She plays with her cousin, Hunter, at church and during the moms group I co-lead on Thursdays. Remember when she first met him in December, and I shared a picture of them in February? Look how grown up they are!
As I mentioned before, Sadie recently met her cousin Remi (my brother’s daughter). Less than a week later, my sister gave birth to her daughter, Caroline! Needless to say, our family is on cloud nine right now with all of these sweet baby girls!
I can’t really put into words what it’s like seeing my siblings become parents and having my daughter meet her cousins. Being an aunt is pretty amazing, too. There is so much joy and rejoicing going on within our family. God has been so good to us.
How about some pictures?!
I’ve got an exciting garden update today. We installed our fencing and planted the garden this weekend! Last time I posted about the garden, the plot looked like this…
Jimmy made the fencing (!), had it galvanized so it won’t rust, and installed it on Saturday. He made the panels in a way that they can be removed from the posts if need be. Here’s what the plot looked like with the fencing all done.
We did our planting on Memorial Day while Sadie napped. We bought our plants from Lowes for the first time (we usually buy them from a local garden center), so we’ll see how they do.
What We Planted
-Purple heirloom tomatoes
-Mini sweet peppers
-Green bell peppers
-Mini sweet yellow peppers
Here’s a look at the garden after we planted everything, laid down stepping stones, and put up a makeshift gate until Jimmy can fabricate one that swings or latches into place.
So there you have it. We are all fenced and planted and now we will focus on weeding, watering, and hopefully harvesting soon enough!
