Spring is Happening

And spring in our house, means garden. Micah is a farmer at heart and for the first time last year planted a vegetable garden. This year, after the success of last year's garden, Micah has double the size of the garden and wanted to plant seeds inside to get them started.

Today, after decompressing from work, he started getting things ready to plant the seeds. His final step was to take Lydia into the little alcove and roll up her sleeves.

He set some seeds into some soil and got close in next to Lydia, picked up her hand, and used her tiny baby fingers to smoosh the seeds into the soil.

It was maybe the cutest thing I've ever seen. This will always be a sweet memory for me, watching Micah sharing something he loves with his girl.

She has farmer's hands...tiny ones.


  1. Brought tears to my eyes. What precious memories.

  2. Dear Jen,
    This is Esther,Ron Garrett's daughter, thank you for blogging about this journey you and Micah are on.
    I just started to read it, I am so moved I cannot stop the tears, tears of joy and sadness but mostly joy, especially on the eve of Easter.
    Knowing the Lord has risen and the hope we have, like Nancy spoke on, joy comes in the morning.
    I am so moved by this amazing little girl and I have been praying for her and you guys all throughout the day everyday since Barb shared this with me and I went to hear Nancy speak.
    This is the first time I have seen her picture , it is going on my fridge she is stunning!
    Thank you again for sharing your heart on this blog and for sharing her life with us, I feel so honored to get a glimpse of her. love and blessings to you, Micah and sweet Lydia!
