talk about it more

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Soaking up the great outdoors

The mulch that we ordered with our neighbors came in last week, and we've been working for days to eliminate over three years of weeds so we could mulch over them. This should be the tough year, and hopefully years hereafter won't be quite as much mulch or nearly as much work!

The girls have been enjoying day after day of outdoor time, and the weather has made it easy! They love to bury their faces in the deep purple lilacs that just went into full bloom. Today Fiona and our neighbor Dever also helped build some square raised wooden beds for our backyard gardening experiment. The wood isn't anything long-lasting, but if we decide we're good at it we may upgrade later when needed. It's exciting to see our backyard transform into something that could actually be halfway pretty!

We still have a long way to go, but nobody's complaining. We see a lot more of the bathtub this way too, so it's win-win all the way around.
