gardening with Diego
I have been spending the last few mornings outdoors with Diego. He was watching me turn over the soil in preparation for planting. He decided to help me out... he took my shovel and tried to step on the edge to drive it down into the earth. It was so cute, to watch him try to step up on that shovel. I had to hold it steady for him, of course. He decided he was better off with the little trowel. As I turned the garden bed, he sat next to me and broke up the large clumps of dirt with that little hand trowel... OH MY, was it cute! He was very focused and kept at it for at least twenty minutes.
He also loves playing with the little yellow miniature rake I have. He really loves chasing Lucy around the yard and she happily obliges.
