My planned garden

One of my goals this summer is to plant a garden. I know I won't have much time to dedicate to my garden since I'll be so busy with school, so it will won't be anything fancy. I'm hoping, though, for maybe just a few tomato and zucchini plants. Hey, if even one plant survives I'll be happy. We just have so much space out here and it seems like such a waste not to have a garden.

Addie loves the idea of a garden and was helping me the other day decide where we would plant the seeds. I asked her what we should grow in the garden. Her response?

"Well, I think we should grow some of those flowers that you blow."

"You mean those yellow flowers that turn into puff-balls?" I replied.

"Yes, that's what I mean. We should grow those."

I'm pretty sure that I can grow dandelions, so I am relieved that even if the garden turns out to be a flop Addie will be happy.

Marley and Me

Grandma has been visiting for the last two days and the girls had a blast with her while I was at school. Yesterday Addie asked if they could watch her favorite show, "Marley and Me." Grandma replied that she wasn't sure if she knew where it was (we watch all of our shows and movies on the computer, and Marley is stored on the E drive). Addie knew where it was, though... "Just go to Marley dot com," she said.
