well, the cold bug has got us and isn't letting go very easily... we have all been taking our turns being the sick one... i think that we've done pretty good this year though, last year it started before the holidays, we don't have very long to go until spring.
we've been reading lots and lots of these little paper books... maiko is doing so good, and layla is really interested in reading too.
and i'm waiting patiently for, and constantly daydreaming about, spring :) i have an idea for the garden... right now it's huge and a little overwhelming... mainly because the soil is in bad shape and needs lots of work... so, i'm going to do the shady half of the garden all in flowers (that half is outside my bedroom window) and i'm going to do the sunnier half in vegetables, that way it will be a lot less work improving the soil. so far we are planning to add chicken manure, lime, peat moss, and sand (very clay soil) and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)
