Hello Spring!!

Ah....the first day of spring! How wonderful, or not. I feel fat, but whatever. Jonah asked to plant something yesterday and I thought that sounded like a pretty good way to welcome in the spring season. We went to Home Depot and picked out a bunch of random things. We brought them home and stuck them in dirt. We'll see how that works out.
Emma did most of the work, with me coaching from behind the camera. Jonah and Jaden were more interested in the watering part of the planting process. Eventually Jaden lost all interest and wandered off to play with a ball and hang on trees.
We planted "flowers" in the pot for next to the front door. I have no idea what kind. The kids just picked what they liked. Then we planted peas from seeds which was fun. Emma was surprised to see the pea seeds were acutally peas. Emma planted a tomato plant. She loves tomatoes so she's hoping that one will actually fruit. Then Jonah planted some zinnia seeds. I love zinnias! There is a strong probability that all or most of these plants will be dead in a month, but we are going to give it our all. If anything grows you'll definately be hearing about it.
