Summer Fun

We've been enjoying the sunshine and trying out some new activities. We picked up an old swing set from some friends who were moving. Nollie just loves the swing and giggles away as we push her. I'm not sure if I should be worried by this but she tries to climb up the slide already. She doesn't like the feeling of the grass so she doesn't go far off her blanket outside but I'm sure that when she figures out this walking thing she'll move around alot more. She still tries out walking but doesn't get more than one or two steps without falling. We got a little pool and enjoyed some splash time on the deck. Nollie also got to try her first corn on the cob. You should have seen the look on her face when she bit into it and it tasted good, she got quite excited.

Curt is still spending lots of time with the "Provost County Lawn Choppers" fixing up his machine. Maybe he's just hanging out b.s.'ing with the guys, but he's enjoying himself so that's ok with me. I'm continually working on the yard, it seems to be an endless task on an acreage. My garden is coming up, but so are the weeds, so I'll have to work on them before they get out of control. I started many flowers and plants from seeds again this year. The plants have done better than last year but I've still got a long way to go. I look at all the plants at the garden centers and green houses and they just look so much better. Mine look so week and many of them don't survive the transplant to the outside. Oh well, I'm learning alot and watching the seedlings sprout up inside is my favorite part. No one really sees my flower beds anyway so it's not a big deal. I'll just keep trying and learning. I'd really like to have a greenhouse to start my plants. Maybe for next year.
