We were able to finally meet my newest nephew on Saturday:
He's a doll, of course, and we all enjoyed spending time with him and his family. And he was wearing spiderman, which my kids all enjoyed. My one-year-old niece loves her uncle Nathaniel so much; she made sure that he was with her all day. And Lydia and her four-year-old cousin had a good time together.
In the garden, I've been busy. I planted most of the tomatoes and tomatillos that I had started from seed. I've even eaten my first radish, and some pak choy and arugula. It turns out that Gyunay loves to just eat arugula leaves.
I also left one pile of just dirt beside the hugelkultur, where I planted purple Molokai sweet potatoes:
I have some orange sweet potatoes planted, too, in another spot. I also had ordered some seed potatoes, and I hope they arrive soon so I can plant those as well.
And, of course, it was Easter weekend. I was received into the Catholic Church at Easter Vigil Saturday night, and then we all attended Mass on Sunday. So we clean up pretty well, but it's hard to get a decent picture!
Nathaniel actually gave Elijah a hair cut Easter afternoon, so I'll have to get a photo of him up soon showing off his new haircut.
