I LOVE everything about this preschool.

The foliage is amazing .

It is pretty awesome to have a indoor pond.

Parental involvement is a plus.

I am overjoyed by their book selection.

Nature is abundant….simply astounding .

Our spice & herbal garden.

Chia. Mustard. Cilantro. Caraway. Dill.

We enjoyed a carefree Monday by planting flowers.

Vinca’s, Pansies, and Snap Dragon’s now litter our yard.

We had fun making a Home depot run.

J picked out Yellow Pear Tomato plant , pansies and petunias.

            

I admired the grapefruit mint , which smells exquisite.

I am planning on putting these plants with unsowed seed.

Our garden will have exotic and beautiful colors : yellow, pink, magenta, and violet.

On Tuesday, I was at the grocery store strolling the spice aisle .

I decided I would sow the spice seeds poppy and fennel.

I have a empty spot that I will sow the poppy seeds.

Fennel seeds will help J when he has a upper respiratory infection.

  

           

I have decided to ditch the gardening with the wooden pallets.

My latest idea is cinder block.

These are some ideas I like.

Over the weekend, I have introduced the backyard to toys we haven’t played with in awhile.

I want to make the backyard a fun and movement focused area.

I took out the tunnel, basketball hoop, and tent.

In the tent will be balls, lego blocks, and foam blocks.

The backyard is a place of creativity and imagination.

Here are a few pics of our backyard fun!

 Climbing his dome.

 Painting with water.

 Basketball challenge.

 Story time; He is retelling the story of Verdi.

 Raking his sandbox.

I am so motivated; that as soon as I can today I am going to work on improving the frontyard. Here are some fabulous ideas. I will modify the ideas to fit my yard.

I Like the abundance of flowers surrounding the bird bath.

I like the grass with the small bushes against the gate.

I will be replacing the wooden crates with wooden pallets. I would like to create a pattern/ puzzle/ maze ensemble.
