SO COOL!

Want to know something amazing?  🙂

This weekend we planted a second garden, and worked really hard on it!  First we transplanted these flowers to new spots.

 Then mixed all four months worth of compost together with the soil.  We ripped out roots, dug, plowed and raked until our backs and hands hurt, but we felt like with each drop of sweat, it was an ode to our children that we were building something beautiful for them!  That their new home would be fun, amazing and have homegrown and nutritious food.

 We had to enlist some help, but he was pretty talented with the dirt and compost.  His shovel skills were unmatched.

Notice the cloth diapers drying in the foreground 🙂

“PRINKLERS!!!”

Teamwork

So, here’s the best part!
 Today, Friday, not even one week after planting the seeds, we had our first sprouting!  And guess which vegetable decided to make it’s debut first?  I’ll give you a hint, we bought it specifically with Maria in mind…

BABY BEET SEEDLINGS!
How cool is that!  Looks like we will have no shortage of Borsch soup!  We fell in love with it while in Russia, and we know it will be so special for our girl, and I bet our boys will love it too! 
It was just so special to see!  We can’t wait to bring you home soon baby girl!  This home is your home, your mama and papa are your mama and papa, and we can’t believe how soon it is that we get to take you in our arms again!
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.”  Pslam 19:1-2
