Jeff asked me to send him photos of the house and what not. He's got alot of rocks and sand around him in Afghanistan, and I'm thinking he asked for photos because the colors of fall might be particularly pleasing to see. So I sent him the spectacular tree color from our yard. No...not the trees in the background that are a quarter mile away....our yard:
Wait 'til you see the front yard:
We have some lovely mums. It's a good thing they are perennial...Lord knows my not-so-green thumb would have done them in weeks ago if not!
And, like any good homeschooling mom would do, I assigned the children to do animal husbandry -- meaning, it's Sam's and Will's jobs to keep the chickens and bees alive until Jeff returns from overseas. (They are his hobby; quilting is mine, thank you very much. Do I ask him to watch my fabric when I'm gone!?! Nooooooooooooooooo.)
