Bonnie, I'm trying to catch up a bit on my blog reading, I browsed through your latest posts and had to laugh out loud at the hair style one LOL

Can't wait to get back home and sit for a while to read through all I've missed.

Hugs,
Sandra

Isn't it fun to watch them work with Dad? Shaelyn is a great helper too.
Enjoy all the benefits of the garden - they're so yummy!
BTW - Shaelyn can say hello and thank you in Chinese and learned to count to 6 at camp this year but that's about it. Hopefully, she'll learn more next year.

Isn't she a sweetie? I bet Rory loved her company.

Ah, I love it!! i have one just like that too! Such a beautiful servants heart your daughter has, and such a great mentor momma she has too! So fun to get your hands in all that glorious dirt and plant... oh man! It's so therapeutic don't ya think??

Can't wait to see all the fruit of your labor!

So sweet...My girl likes to help in the kitchen mostly. It's a challenge for me and my type A personality to let her help in there. ;)
So is your growing season backwards there as well? Aren't you getting ready for winter? I guess it's pretty mild compared, but it still boggles my mind that you are planting vegetables at this time of year! :)

Hey wait...isn't it supposed to be winter in Australia now?? ;) Ah to have temperate weather all year round! Your kids will have so much fun seeing the garden grow and produce yummy veggies. What a good little helper you have, too. Love it when the kids want to pitch in and help. :)

I like how you have a little helper.

She looks like a great little helper. Your garden looks wonderful! I have some strawberry plants, but no strawberries. They were eaten up my the squirrels or Alvin the chipmunk! Enjoy! xxo
