May Is a Busy Month

I really enjoy gardening.   Well that is not entirely true.  Let me restate that.  I really enjoy watching our garden grow.  Call me strange, but I get a kick out of seeing a new seedling popping its head out of the soil.  Each day something new is sprouting.  We should have a variety of fruits and veggies this summer!  I'm not the only one who could hardly wait!
Our pomegranate tree has an abundance of fruit this year!  This picture was taken a few weeks ago-- you should see it now!
We planted this grape vine two years ago.  It has its first grape cluster!

This is a picture taken the day after Nolan fell and hit his nose.  Though he is feeling fine now, he still remembers.  Today when I was out watering the garden, Nolan pointed to the edge of the planter box and pointed to his nose.  
Good thing I was able to get him in to see the plastic surgeon next week since he isn't scheduled to see the cranial facial team until the end of July.
Yesterday I got the results of Nolan's kidney ultrasound.  His kidneys look perfect!
Oliver is one content little boy when he is licking an egg beater.   I once took it away to clean him up and he began to cry.  I handed him back the beater after I rinsed it off, and he was still happy!
Peaches from our tree are sweet and delicious.  They make the best peach cobbler.
My handsome son Adam who is wrapping up his freshman year of college.
Paul has really blossomed this year-- if boys do indeed blossom like girls.  Or is it-- budded?
Oh never mind, I'm sure you know what I mean.  He is more outgoing, affectionate, and curious about things.  He is quite the character!
On the way back from an early morning appointment, I stopped by a yard sale.  I found this fireman costume for fifty cents.  Look at that smile!  I'd say I got my money's worth the moment I gave it to him.
Today Anna and Alex had their third orthodontist appointment.  Alex got his expander and Anna had laser surgery.  Paul and Anastasia are going to get braces too.  They had impressions taken of their teeth.
 I really can't say enough good things about the orthodontist that we are seeing.  He is amazing.  The staff is amazing.  The office is amazing.
Feeling very blessed.


  1. Do you spray your peach tree? I get lots of peaches, but they are so buggy... That pomegranate is wonderful!!!

  2. So jealous of your long growing seasons!!! (is there ever a non growing season down there?)

  3. Hi! I got a weird fungus on our fruit tree and even hired a tree specialist but the fruit trees still ended up dying . I had fruit trees for years . It was great to be able just to go outside and pick enough peaches and apples for a pie. Pat

  4. With those golden ringlets Paul remind me of a Greek statue. :)
