So we have the best Home Teacher ever. Seriously, if you’re a single mama in need of someone awesome, angle to get the last bishop, who was just released, and doesn’t have any grandkids in the area assigned as your Home Teacher. Last spring, he fenced our front yard and put in sprinklers and flower beds, and moved the Rainbow playset from the big house to Little House. This spring, much to my surprise and Bean’s utter delight, they are planting a garden in the enormous backyard.
Rototilled, weedwacked, raised beds filled with compost… So help me, this man personifies Saint. Bean’s got some grand plans, including watermelon, cantalope, tomatoes for mama, as well as bell peppers and eggplants. We also now have a peach tree. Abby has asked for some flowers, preferably pink tulips. Jeffrey wants blackberries. We’ll see how that goes.
