1. I talked my hubby into coming to plant a tree with my class on Friday. He happily came and we planted a Willow Oak. 1) In honor of Earth Day this week and making a contribution to help the Earth. 2) For the kids to watch grow while they grow - we planted in front of the library window so they will see it for years to come as they walk by. 3) As a show of love for our student teacher who will be leaving us next week (when we are learning about PLANTS, and reading The Giving Tree with activities for her last day!) and 4) For my sweet little first grader (Ben) as we have shared 1st grade together this year (in separate rooms) so that we can watch it grow as he grows and I can have a piece of him here even when he's gone. Oh man, that was a lot of stuff!! Here are some pics!
Isn't it so sweet???
2. We planted some miniature orange and lemon trees in our garden a couple of years ago that have gotten TALLER, but never produced any fruit. We are super excited to see these baby oranges and lemons today in the garden. YAY!!!
We also have a TON of baby bean sprouts! It is amazing to see the growth all around me! We have a really big garden because my husband enjoys it so much so it will be time for some GOOD eatin' real soon!
3. I was pulling weeds this week and found this dandelion weed with a root that was FAR longer than I EVER though it could be. My son held it up and it's almost as tall as he is from root to end. WOW! Did you have a clue the roots of these WEEDS could be so long?? (He's 46 1/2 inches tall by the way!!)
HERE is you are interested.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING weekend! See you soon!
