I scrolled through past years' photos on or as close to May 1st as I downloaded photos and I thought it was funny that the theme was the same - the garden, baby chicks, and little helpers getting dirty. Then there are several sleeping, tired photos. I love spring!
I didn't remember, but we built our first two garden beds in 2010, so Julia was turning four.
Elijah turned two that summer -
Here is Tori and Julia in 2011 helping plant; they would have been almost five and 6.5.
This is 2012 when we planted my Mother's Day roses -
We also attempted strawberry plants in pallets that year, but the grass and weeds were too strong of a force.
Here is Tori and Julia in 2013, age 8 and almost 6, still planting and watering.
The baby chick pictures look pretty much the same year to year, but here is a batch in 2013.
Lastly, a photo of Elijah last year after a good day in the sun and a fresh bath. I need to get my camera out the next few days and capture Selah, Elijah and Bella in the garden; they are hard little workers!
