For Family Home Evening, we talked about Weeds in our life.
Weeds of contention, Weeds of behaviors.
We talked about how our family is a garden, and we need to get the weeds out of our life.
We talked about how weeds can suffocate plants, and our lives.
So, we went out to the front yard, and took care of the weeds.
We bought the kids gloves and spades and rakes.

Then we went to a nursery to buy some new flowers and trees.
I'm a sucker for succulents.
Then we came home and planted.
The kids were filthy, happy, and totally got the message. I love when everything just comes together like that.
PS - When did my kids get so huge?
