Okay, I know this isn't the most flattering photo of me. Keep in mind that Eli took this one and I had pretty much lost all feeling in my face because he took his dear sweet time!
From the top, tomatoes, and onions.
Here is part of the garden behind the family room (where the garden was last year) There is another box this shape and size mirrored to the left. This has carrots and onions in it so far.
Still to plant: zucchini, cantaloupe, watermelon and pumpkin.

I have some things to blog about...like my garden, or what will soon become my garden. I have pictures of the process but they are on the card in my husband's phone. My husband is currently in Boston which means I can't post any of the pics until later this week. :(
I do have a picture of the poster I made. (Made might be a bit deceiving. I traced it from an overhead projector and then painted it. )
For all of you who wonder what it is I do for the Book Fair...this is one thing. Our theme this Spring is "Take a Reading Road Trip" so we have a wall in the school decorated with a map (photo coming soon) and this sign. I spend a lot of time doing the two Book fairs a year at the Elementary School, but I LOVE it. And I love the girls I work with.
I promised Noah that I would post a photo of this worm.
He is convinced it is a cankerworm that the county has recently sprayed to kill. I don't have the heart to tell him it is just some ugly run o' the mill worm. At least, now when he asks if I posted the photo I can honestly say "yes".
This (left) is a photo of a REAL Cankerworm.

So, long story short...we drove thru the night, 13 hours to Miami to meet our cruise ship in plenty of time. We definitely had the help of the Lord. I drove most of the way (11 hours) and didn't nod off once. The weather was abysmal (thunderstorms and hard rain) but the kids slept, we made it safely thru the storms and the traffic was almost non-existent.
The Cruise..... recoup, regroup and relax.
We were on the ship from Saturday to Thursday making stops in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Georgetown, Grand Cayman. It was a perfect vacation. Enjoy the photos.

Sunrise at sea Sunday April 6th.
Yes it is pretty, but I didn't like waking up early on my first day of vacation!
My four sons (Garrett hated the matching shirt thing!)
On Monday we spent the day in Ocho Rios, Jamaica on the beach and playing with dolphins and other exotic animals. Here are two Jamaican drummers.
