A little first-day-of-summer gardening with the Kelley kids yesterday yielded a great surprise:
Gavin has his first tomato!
He was pretty excited to have beat me. I only have 4 tomato plants this year and he has 3, but he got the first tomato out of the deal, a tiny, green sphere getting ready to turn into a gorgeous red tomato. Yum. We were so happy.
Then, to Gavin’s great excitement, we noticed he also had a pepper on his little sweet pepper plant. Glory be!
“I’m the luckiest boy in the world!” he told us.
Be still, my melting, proud, love-filled, gooey-sweet, this-kid-is-amazing heart. He gets the gardener in me because the same heart beats in him, too. Gavin and I were born to be sustainable-living-backyard-farmers. I am the luckiest Nonna in the world!
If you could see his eyes (I stink at photography), you’d know they were happy!
My latest movie project
Hunter is at the most hilarious stage. He likes to make me laugh and will pose for pictures for me. I caught a few before he jumped in the pool recently. He loves pulling out his Kung Foo Panda moves. I laugh every. single. time.
