T' Time {#14}

This Take the Time To Challenge is
   plant a seed.
 I'm talking about the itty-bitty-widdle ones that you buy at Wal-Mart (for all you lucky girlies that have a Wal-Mart).  They used to be a dime for a pack of seeds, maybe 20 cents.  But take the time this week to plant seeds with your kids.  It's cheap.  It's fun.  It's educational.

It's a good life lesson.  Our current favorite is sunflower seeds.  Those are so amazing.  Your kids can hold the tiny seed in their hand.  After good old sunshine, and a little time and water, you'll be taking their picture by a 6 foot flower.  "Read your Bible, Pray everyday and you'll grow...grow....grow."
Take the challenge...spend a dime....get dirty.

When our two oldest were little, we once made a Sunflower fence. Everyone loved it. We also made sunflower forts.

Your sunflowers made me smile! They are beautiful.

Just thought I'd let you know that I've made your donut cake 3 times now and everyone that has eaten it has loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
