The Prophet said to plant a garden...

so that is what we'll do.
For God has given rich brown soil, the rain and sunshine too.
And if we plant the seeds just right and tend them carefully,
Before we know, good things will grow to feed our family.

Little Roman was way into planting the garden. So serious about his job of helping. He loved pushing the seeds into the holes and covering them up. According to him everything that we planted is peas. Thankfully we got it done right before all this rain. Now we just need some sun.

You will also notice Roman's summer haircut. He does not like the clippers. Not at all. Lots and lots of tears and screaming, and snot and hair all over his face. I was cutting and Brad was holding. I finally had enough and switched Brad places and literally had to hold his head between my hands so Brad could finish up. How can you tell I am a pediatric nurse - I am good at holding kids heads still.
And speaking of haircuts, here is a picture of my hair. Not the best picture, but I most certainly do not have a nice pregnancy glow. It's more of a bad acne, fat cheeks glow. So I fear I will not get a better picture for a long long time. Now you can see where Roman gets his fat cheeks and squinty smile eyes from!

Love the hair and your face is not fat! Wish I could tell you that hair cuts get better...Zane still screams and kicks 1/2 of the time...once he cried so hard he burst the little blood vessels around his eyes. Bribing sometimes works...
