How We Know I Am Not Really French, and Gardening Fun

We went to a flea market last weekend, and Benjamin had us dying laughing when he saw a toy ironing board and iron and said, "Mommy, what's that?!?" His delivery was absolutely perfect.

French women iron obsessively, and even buy irons with separate, larger water reservoirs so they can steam for hours upon hours. Clearly I am not French, since we don't even own an ironing board, and my children don't know what an ironing board and iron are for. Actually, irons are used more often in our house for waxing skis than for anything else.

A couple of weeks ago, the weather started turning nicer on a more regular basis - we are LOVING it and going outside as much as we can. The boys are great garden helpers.

Benjamin showed Noah how to plant things in a pot. Benjamin assures me that the sticks he planted WILL grow.

Digging up the garden is hard work!

Time for a little break.
