just being outside.

Sometimes I get impatient when I want to spend the day outside gardening and can't seem to find the time to do so.

That's the struggle I have with doing what I need to do and doing what I want to do.

Sometimes they're the same thing...

Dropping everything, grabbing the shovel and moving some plants around. Doing a little pruning and weeding. Letting the kids run around barefoot with no schedule to hold. Parker working in the garden next to me.

Visiting the local nurseries and calling them field trips.

Those are my favorite days.

I like all the other ones too, but I love tending my yard and garden.

I happened to stumble on your blog and I must say - I will always have a soft spot for large families. I am #7 of 10 :) I have 3 of my own, and they're plenty for me... but God bless women like you and my mother, because having 6 sisters and 3 brothers has been one of the biggest blessings in my life! I think I'm going to enjoy following your blog! God's blessings :)
