Putting in a vegetable garden with Isaac, but what does he think about all the changes in our backyard?
Lots of moving and hauling and digging and stacking and watering,.....
Isaac LOVES it!!!!
Dirt, mud, water????....Bring it on!!!!
Of course, we have to take breaks to play,...
And borrow Mommy's gloves,...
Isaac likes gloves,...it nullifies the icky sensory stuff!!!
Food and water are essential not just for the plants,....
Plants,...well watered by Isaac
Our first vegetable bed,...not glamorous, but it will get the job done.
As for Isaac,...he gives gardening a thumbs up!!!!
This week is Spring Break for Isaac,...no preschool, but that's fine, we've been sooooo busy trying to get a vegetable garden started,...and for the record,...gardening with a preschooler is verrrrrry slow,...but no surprise there,...so we just go with the flow,...and Isaac's flow has been fantastic: verbal, social and behavior.
Maybe its all the fresh air and sunshine,...because Isaac's verbal output is growing by leaps and bounds,...and his social imitation is fantastic,...especially this evening when I was planting the garden bed,...Isaac was by my side - imitating my every move as he planted rocks and sticks,...and golly I'd wish they'd grow just because he was sooooo cute and soooo earnest,...as if those rocks were seeds.
Soon as we can,...we're going to be planting some radishes and carrots and other child friendly veggies,...for Isaac to harvest and what fun that will be!!!
Thumbs up for all this good interaction. It's wonderful to know that Isaac really loves being outside and even helping with all the chores,...especially watering,...
Believe me, all our plants will be well hydrated this summer,...and this afternoon when we were adding the dirt to the bed,...Isaac helped by throwing in handfuls of sand,...like it was pixie-dust,...and perhaps that sand will make our garden grown
Who knows? We're just glad for the one-on-one time with our little guy and that he is so receptive,...perhaps nature is the best therapy!!!
Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
