we decided to try our green thumb out this spring and plant a garden. now i say green thumb with tongue in cheek because i am not very good about remembering to water the few plants we already have so taking on a garden will be quite a challenge.
i did a little research and decided that a square foot garden would be a manageable introduction to the world of gardening for us rutherfords. so first we had to decide on a sunny spot. in our very tree-shaded backyard this was bit of a challenge, but here's the designated spot.

there was quite a dramatic build-up to the passing out of parts this year and all burrito kept saying was "i just don't want to be the tree, i just don't want to be the tree, any part BUT the tree." i think the picture below pretty much reveals the part he received. there were some initial tears but several sweet friends encouraged him by telling him that the tree has one of the funniest parts in the play. he enters and exits to quite the comical musical accompaniment.
honestly, i think he knew the tree would garner some attention and that is probably why he didn't want THAT part! :)
you did a great job burrito, and we were so proud of you!

they had prepared special treats for us. first was this sweet little flower arrangement. the label says "mom, you're 'out of the box' beautiful!"
and just for fun, here is the link to my mother's day tea with burrito when he was in pre-k.
