Apple Trees for Leif
Today Jamie and I bought Leif 2 semi-dwarf apple trees with money he had saved from Nana and Poppy.
It has been a beautiful day, and Leif played in the sprinkler with Nikita while Dad dug some holes for the trees.
Leif was so funny, getting his hands wet and then rubbing them all over his hair. He thought he was taking a bath! I was surprised he took right to the spray and had such a blast with no crying.
Afterwards he went over to his apple trees for some pictures. He loved holding the shovel and playing in the loose dirt.
Leif even consulted with Dad on the soil quality, but I drew the line at the taste test.
We look forward to watching Leif and his trees grow in the coming years. He already likes to pick and eat the blackberries and blueberries, and I am sure he will learn to tend to his trees.
We are a family blessed with nine children. Four of our blessings were born to us, and five joined us through adoption. They have Down Syndrome and are such a blessing to us and everyone who knows them!
Jamie and I have been married 20 years. He is a high school teacher, and I stay home to school the children.
We are now seeking to live together in a way that is pleasing to Jesus as our family encounters new challenges and embraces what each day brings.
