I read this today about the benefits of gardening with kids. Since it was so true, I thought I would share it with you all-- I know we have experienced many of these benefits as we have participated in our co-op garden this summer!
I am sorry for my silence this weekend here on the blog. I was involved in speaking for the HOTM online conference on Saturday-- and just before I was scheduled to do my second session, my internet went whacko, causing me to have to spend hours on the phone with technical services for both my internet provider and my router. Needless to say, I was not able to participate in the Q&A as planned. Technology-- it confuses and frustrates me as much as it amazes me.
Yesterday was our anniversary-- 17 years. We went out last night to dinner at Ruth's Chris. It was good-- but SO expensive. Curt finally had to tell me to stop talking about the prices and just enjoy my meal. He said, "We will never have another 17th wedding anniversary, so let's just enjoy this moment." So true. I was quiet after that. He wrote a very sweet tribute to our marriage on his blog if you want to check it out. We wrapped up our date with a nice impromptu visit with some old friends. I can't imagine a better way to spend an evening.
