A Daddy/Daughter Date with Dirt

I love this picture.  Grace was telling daddy all about what they were doing, and he was trying to soak it all up.  She has a lot to say pretty much all the time...about everything.

Ben took this project on by himself, including getting her involved in the mess.  As you can see, I was not paying attention at the beginning of this date, or those tights would have been OFF!

I just love watching Ben teach, talk, play, and love Grace.  Maybe it's because they are my two most precious people in the world...just a guess.

Watching Ben patiently show Grace how to wash the rocks for drainage at the bottom, then pile them in the bottom carefully, followed by the layering of  delicious dirt, and gingerly transfer the plants to their new home was a real treat to this momma...a finer thing in the wonderful life that God has given us.

Speaking of delicious dirt...

Isn't it the most awesome thing to watch the love of your life love on the life you made together. I never get tired of watching my daughter with her daddy. Love the pics. You'll savor this one for a long time. Almost as long as she savored that dirt. Yummmm

These pictures are ADORABLE! And now they will be able to watch their plant grow and remember the fun they had planting it!

Thank you for sharing this Finer Thing!
(I'm a gardener so this makes me itch for spring!)
Happy Friday!
