What a fantastic program-it’s great to get kids interested in gardening at an early age! I truly believe that learning to grow our own food is important both for the health benefits and for the stress it takes off the food supply system. Just think, if every American grew just 10% of their own food, how much better off we’d all be!

Christmas Traditions I Remember
There was a lot of conflict in our house growing up, but Christmas is one of the times when I remember some very special memories.  We lived far away from family, so Christmas was just us–but with 5 kids it was still chaos.  We used to tromp into the woods with my dad, hauling a sled behind us in the snow, and actually pick out and cut down a Christmas tree on our own property (we had 42 acres).  I can only imagine that we were more hindrance than help. . . but it is an event that I remember being good.  Another thing I remember fondly is a game we kids would play called “exact”.  In the days leading up to Christmas we would take turns telling EXACTLY what we were going to do on Christmas morning “Ok, so when I wake up I’ll go and wake Amanda up, then when mom and dad get up we’ll all rush down to the tree, I’m going to sit on the window seat and open my presents there. . . ” I’m sure we gave my mom many a giggle listening to us go on and on in nauseating detail!

New Additions to Our Backyard!
Your planters look great! I just love the self watering planters myself-I forget to water frequently enough otherwise. Hope your little dude is enjoying his “new” backyard!

Differently Clothing: Conscious & Fly
You look gorgeous, as always. I always wondered why women of color fight their own natural hair so much. . .I think God has a plan and what you are born with is usually the best for you 🙂 Although I do admit to some red fashion dye in my hair for fun occasionally.
