Playing in the Dirt

Trying to make it feel more like spring, we planted Rye Grass Seeds (couldn't find wheat grass seeds, but this should work). These little pots are on the dining room window ledge which is quite sunny. I will post an update next week when they start to sprout.
I didn't want to be left out of the fun, so I took some of my little glass jars on the kitchen window ledge and filled them with dirt and seeds too.
We have been working more and more on independence, and they are coming along quite well. I know it is a good thing, but seeing them doing things for themselves makes me wonder what happened to my babies.

We can always count on Emma for a laugh. She dug a hole and shoved her head in it... "just like my cousin Buck." (Buck is my sister Mandy's dog... Emma and Abi's ONLY "cousin").

Haha!!! "Just like my cousin Buck." Mandy is ruining these kids! When is she going to have real kids? Before you know it they'll be peeing outside! (I know you'll be reading this Mando :)

Where did you get those lovely pots? They look like they're plastic? I am trying to plant and I want some cute inexpensive pots! Thanks!
