Third Child

With Aaron off to kindergarten in the fall, it seems just as good a time as any to announce that we have a third child we are taking care of.  That would be our garden.

It's no big deal by suburban standards, but for us it's our little slice of the joys and grimes of growing stuff.  Amy tends to it like a little child, pampering it and lavishing it with attention and insisting on the best sustenance and techniques to help it along. 

Hopefully, as Aaron and Jada have blossomed, so will our plants, flowers, herbs, and vegetables.  At the very least, despite its frustrations, it is a source of comfort and happiness for Amy, for which I am glad.
