yesterday was fathers day and it was lame and unceremonious. we were supposed to get together with my parents and have a cookout it didn't end up happening so i was left in a lurch and had no father's day plans. so we did nothing. david probably could have cared less, he isn't very celebratory about anything. i felt like the lamest wife ever though
his mustache continues to amuse me
yesterday we rode our bikes to church which was great. after church we went over to work on the garden (me) and david and austin purchased materials and made rain barrels. no pictures of said barrels though as i had to leave with some crazy kids so they could lie down for a nap. oh and somehow i left my keys in maggie & austin's freezer. HUH? we wrongly blamed olive for losing them in the garden the whole afternoon. whoops. here is how our garden is growing
raspberries coming out
head lettuces, like whoah!
the beans are really taking off
all three broccoli plants are looking great too
those are the only photos i took but so far out of the enormous list of things that we have growing only the spinach has failed. i still don't get it, im frustrated. im sure it was weather related somehow as the soil is as perfect as i think it can be. we took home enough salad for several days of salads but i think ill just dump it altogether and take it to small group tomorrow instead.
also it's been a little hot around here
bonnets are my addiction
and most importantly MY HUSBAND STARTS COLLEGE TODAY!! again... for those new to this blog the condensed version of this situation goes as follows - david went to college and got a degree in commercial photography. several years into the profession it was in no way satisfying and so we agreed he deserved to be at a job he loved. so we sold our house, moved into a cheap rental, accepted some financial help from davids parents (without whom this would be impossible), and now he is going back to OSU to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering. so we will be poor (but hopefully rich in love and faith and friends and experience!) for the next 4-5 years.
