[my mama planting garlic]
[blue scribble courtesy of his little brother!]
To celebrate the shortest day of the year I took on a plot at our 'local' community garden to plant out some extra garlic. I needed another garden bed like a hole in the head, especially one that that was so full of weeds! But as the babe slept in his car seat and the others climbed trees I got it weeded and planted out (much later than our other garlic crop). Upon arriving home Max wrote a story of his day, the bit above was my favourite part! I'm loving this new phase where he is so interested in writing; writing stories, writing letters, writing notes, writing jokes (will these jokes get funny one day?). It is just so great to see the excitement of writing by himself.
To 'celebrate' the longest night Reuben came in to our bed early for a chat
Here's to the days growing longer
