Whole Lotta Love!

there was a whole lot of love flying around yesterday when the cousins got together at the park. this pic is so cool. from left to right you can see dylan looking at me while petting ariana's head, lily holding him but looking at ariana, taylor holding ariana, my arm around taylor and lily, and then evan looking after colin! i felt so blessed!

just getting around to a project for this summer. evan, lily and taylor are ready to start their own

herb gardens. we have chosen catnips, chamomile
(otherwise known as flower tea with the kids),
chives (dubbed hotgrass) to start with. will post
pics as we get each area dug and planted!

today dylan and taylors other grandma has them, but evan, lily and i are going to go get taylor and visit our local native american museum Dickson Mounds .
these older kids deserve a cool fun day where they don't have to help watch little ones, as much as grandma does! In the afternoon we are going to the matinee and see the movie UP.
these three older kids are learning to be responsible not only for themselves, but the welfare of the younger kids, and our group as a whole. i am very proud of taylor and evan especially as they really help me out and are very responsible!
hugs to all who visit comfrey cottages
