After I showed them my little beans that were sprouting, they were convinced that planting seeds would be fun. So then we went outside on the front stoop and began planting beans in a bowl. I listened to stories from their preschool and first grade classes and watched how two sisters could show their different personalities even while completing this little activity.
The oldest one talked about any and everything, while the youngest one very quietly and meticulously completed each step. It was amazing! In the end, both girls had planted their seeds and placed them in the sun while we ate our spaghetti dinner. I'll definitely be sure to check in with their bean progression. :-)
Speaking of beans, here is the way my beans were on Sunday.
And this is what I noticed after work on Tuesday. (Pardon the cell phone pic.) Guess I need to find these babies a new temporary home before going into the ground.
Now, I need to plant this beautiful gardenia bush that was given to me. Did I mention that before? I just found the right spot for it in my yard. :-)
