Everything Grows and Grows

We planted our first family garden this year, and everything is sprouting up like crazy! We have tomatoes, spinach, squash, cucumbers, shallots, marigolds, lettuce, sunflowers, and bell peppers growing in our little 4x4 foot plot.

The kids are definitely sprouting up too. It's amazing to me how much Jack and Elijah have both grown this year. Jack is getting into the agreeable years right when Elijah is getting into those terrible twos - it seems like the frequency of timeouts and spankings has completely inverted between those two overnight. And our sweet Avery is six months old... the time has flown by.

Two Reasons to Love the First Week of March

The Caroline Jasmine on our back porch... it blooms when everything else is still brown. Always our first sign that spring is on it's way!
My little man's birthday is on March 6. He turned two this year. We are having so much fun with him: playing trains, reading books, singing songs. Love this boy.

This video made me laugh.

I found it particularly funny since Josh and I had lots of theological conversations when we first started dating, with me at one point handing him a copy of John Piper's church's article on "What We Believe about the Five Points of Calvinism." I haven't quite made him burn his NIV though... yet.
