helping hands in the soil


Today was one of those days that left me loving my (day) job, even though I was "working" for most of Saturday...hardly felt like work though!  First, I brought one of our kids to lunch and to pick up the brand new keyboard she earned!  Some of our kids are fortunate enough to get free private music lessons through this amazing non-profit called Kids in a New Groove and they'll even give them an instrument of their own once they've shown that they're dedicated to practicing!  

Then, after a speedy run to Home Depot and a Clark Kent-esque change of clothes, I led a group of volunteers in our spring planting.  The garden is looking better than ever... just keeps improving each season!  I was hoping to go home and work on our garden at home afterward but now a nap is sounding better than anything...
