school pictures and tomatoe news

Juergen had an early meeting. I had to get Sarah and Jessica both on their busses. I forgot that Sarah has her kindergarten photo taken today. She was not dressed up very nice. The other kids were. One little boy had on a 3 piece suite. Poor little guy, his hair was greased back. I asked the driver to wait while I ran and got her a nicer sweater. She dresses herself. Today she had an older play t-shirt. It was perfect for play, but nothing for a school photo. At least her hair was shinny and clean. I have 100's of great pictures of Sarah. The school photos don't really mean much to me. I don't even buy them unless they are very good. I'm not a fan of formal portraits.
I watered my tomatoe plants before my first cup of coffee. I thought it was funny that I thought about my plants before I thought of myself. I baby these plants. I've been growing them from seed since March. It hasn't been easy. We have had allot of cold rain, and not enough sunshine. But my plants are all tall. I have hundreds of flowers on the vines. It will not be long until we get fruit. I'm very excited about this! I don't grow enough food to be self sustaining, but I have made good progress this year. Some people think I've grown vegetables for years. It's not true. Last year we tried growing vegetables with very little success. This is our 2nd year, and we have made progress. It is a long term goal, and I'm only just beginning. Hopefully we will not get hit by any serious storms or bugs. Really, it is not all skill. It is so much in Gods hands. Like everything in life, every good gift comes from God. I can plant and I can water but only God can give the increase!
