2007, 2008

What a difference a year makes! This is little Will a couple days ago (with his favorite new toy- a pinwheel from Grandma Tish- thanks, Mom!) and a photo of him from last May. This was the first pic we got of him smiling. It's amazing, since I see him from day to day I don't notice any changes, but when I see pictures of him when he was younger I can't believe it's the same boy.

Also this time last year I was still working for the church, Great-Grandma Roberts and Aunt Terry were watching William during the day, and Greg was working at American Fork Hospital and going to SLCC. Wow!

In our garden we've got some lettuce up, along with zucchini, peas, corn, the first 2 potatoes, and of course our tomatoes and peppers that were starts. We also had little purple mystery seedlings pop up in several places and nobody could figure out what they were until I remembered I planted sunflowers all over. :) Hopefully this nice warm weather (ok, pretty darn hot weather) will get the rest of the seeds up. I love gardening!

Mommy's Little Helper

After a very busy few days, we finally have a flower bed, 4 trees, and a vegetable garden in our yard!

William has been a BIG help. His favorite things are digging in the dirt and playing with the hose, or the bucket, or the mud. What can I say, he really likes it all. He just loves being outside. I think both of us are happy to get out of the house and run around.
Greg is also a very exuberant gardener. We put in lettuce, onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, cabbage, tomatoes, and peppers. In a couple weeks we will add beans, corn, and squash. For now we just have to water and wait. I hate this part! After 2 days of no new sprouts, I become convinced that the seeds will never come up and am ready to give up! (Aren't gardeners supposed to be patient and faith-filled people? Hmm...) But thank goodness the seeds never listen to me and they always come up.
We are all looking forward to fun times this summer playing in the yard, running through the sprinklers, and just being OUTSIDE!
