Aren't these such SUNNY flowers? I never really appreciated them before...I'm more of a tulip fan, but now I think they are so lovely...especially with a bright blue sky, some happy honey bees buzzing about, and warm sunshine.
The Santos Clan is back to spending our days at the farm. This time around, we are selling U-Pick Daffodils. We only planted 5000 bulbs, so our farm is small, but it is still fun to walk through the rows of flowers.
Near the field, we have a fun place set up to paint rocks and pictures. Then, inside the shop, there is pretty yellow ribbon to wrap around the flowers and colorful candies and lollipops in old fashioned glass jars.
I can't think of a more wonderful way to help support the family.
The girls ran around the farm like they hadn't been outside forever. At the end of the day they were brown and dusty from playing "Kestinopia" (I have no idea where they came up with the name) It's a make-believe land of adventure that they throw themselves into with every speck of their imagination...and they never tire of it.
Noah, on the other hand does tire of it. Maybe because he needs a boy to play with. He often left the game to come and get a sandwich or beg for a gum drop from the shop.
As the afternoon wore on he got very tired. We went out to the van. The back seat was removed so the kids could lie down for a nap. He rested with a sandwich while I told him stories of brave Bible heroes...David and Goliath, Gideon, Joshua. Such a yummy time...peanut butter sandwiches, warm sunshine on a cool day, and a sweet boy asking for another story.
I'm so thankful for these days when my children can run free and happy and my young boy enjoys his momma. We are truly blessed.
