Sunshine

Everyone pitched in and helped with the planting today! It was such a beautiful day and I even remembered to put sunblock on everyone, including me. 

Lucy did a great job spacing the seeds on her own.

Henry kept falling in the hole when he leaned in to drop the seed. He was so proud that he got to help too!

Lucy even did some weeding. I am really excited that she will be able to help with that chore this summer!

Dave gave her a quick lesson on which was a pea plant and which was a weed then she went down the whole row.

We weren't the only ones out in the sun today, we moved the brooder outside for a few hours. The birds all got their first taste of grass and the big, bright outdoors. They pecked at the dandelions and ate a couple of worms that the kids dug up for them. I had been thinking that we would start taking them out everyday, but it was a lot more work than I thought. Going outside will have to be a once every few days thing, I think.

 

Henry was so excited that the birds were outside.
