Sproutlings

I was originally going to entitle this post as "watching and waiting", but since I have planted my seeds a whole week has gone by. So now the title is "Sproutlings" because as of yesterday we have little sprouts in the garden. It's funny because when you have just one it could be a weed, but we have more than one. Quite a few actually.

It's been a lot of fun going out every day and watering and watching for something, just something to peek out and show itself. I can't wait until things get growing a little more!!

Here are a couple pictures I took last week of the garden. You can see the tomatoes, raspberries and pepper plants in the background. Nothing else was up at the time.





We're doing pretty well here. I've been sick for so long but am finally kicking it. I was getting over my last cold that was a couple weeks long and I caught another one! If that wasn't enough I got pink eye! I've never had pink eye before in my life and I don't know where I'm catching these things! Everyone else is doing well. Apparently I'm just working so hard outside that I've worn myself out and am very susceptible to these things.

Ella's all done with soccer for the year. She had a really great time playing and her team was a good team. The kids all had so much fun. They did really well too!

It's been quite warm outside and will be for the rest of the week. We've decided to stay inside today as it's supposed to get to 90 degrees and feel like 100. I think we'll get the pool out tomorrow.

We brought out the sprinkler last week and the kids had a lot of fun running around in it. I took a lot of pictures! Here are some of the ones that made the cut...























It was a rainy week a couple weeks ago, so since I couldn't be outside I was busy sewing inside. Julia from Work, Wife, Mom...Life! will be doing a giveaway later this week for one of my dresses. I'll let you know when she puts it up. Until then you can check out my site for the new dresses I have out there.

oh, running in the sprinkler sounds divine. looks like the kids sure had a blast!

your garden looks great!! i am so jealous over here with my little container pots ;)

pink eye? booooo! i used to get it all the time as a kid and it was awful. i was so upset when Logan developed an eye infection when he was only 9 days old! at least it's not spreading around your whole family.
