Don't you love all that dirt on Emmeline's face? Evidence of what a great immune system she's bound to have.
|I think I'm in love with my garden. Here's why: it teaches my kids all kinds of things, it keeps them entertained and excited and.....most of all, it feeds them. They can play out in the back yard for hours and I don't have to stop what I'm doing to get them a snack (that's the kind of mom I am....I hate stopping what I'm doing to get snacks). They just pick their snacks as they go. Sure, they eat a lot of dirt....Emmeline eats the whole strawberry, stem and all, but I think all that's supposed to be good for their immune systems, right? The other day they decided that they wanted to pick their own lunch. So I sat merrily completing my tasks while they picked and ate. Hazel even made her own pb and j sandwich to go along with her tomatoes, strawberries and carrots.|
