Faith and Art

This is the mountain I have been faithfully moving for the last few weeks.  This mountain of rich garden soil came to me in the first place, but it is up to me to distribute it to the garden beds.  So I show my faith by my work, shovel by shovel, bucket by bucket.  Sometimes I have help -- Rollo excavating train tunnels, or Scoot giving the loaded wagon a push.  D2 always wants to be involved, and last week he found a new way to contribute.
He started poking twigs into the bucket of soil.  When I asked why, he said, "I'm decorating it!"  I'd remove the twigs before dumping the dirt, and he would replace them in each load.  The next day he used this aesthetic sense to decorate his peanut butter and jelly sandwich with Skittles.  It was, well, colorful.  And he ate it all together.  But he has not repeated that recipe. 

 Speaking of decorations, here are our Easter egg masterpieces for this year. . .
and D2's partners in decoration!
