I grew up with my mother telling me a story called "Bloom where you are Planted." It is a great little story about being happy with your surroundings & making the most of them, no matter your situation. I loved it and it has stuck with me ever since & I live by it.
So, I decided to tell my girls the story while we decorated flower pots and planted some of their favorite flowers in them. They had a great time & it is fun to discuss gardening & tying in some of life's little lessons.
Filling our pots with soil
planting the seeds and tucking them in
watering our seeds
their home until they grow big and pretty!
For now we sit and wait patiently for our beautiful flowers to grow. For a 2 & 5 year old, not always the easiest part!!
