My Preschool Day

I wrote this post a few days ago,but for some reason it disappeared from my blog.Where it went I am not sure,but I did not save it and I was ask about it so I am going to try to write it again.

My preschool day was something different for me.The reason for my day Mon.Oct. 20 I have to back up to the Friday before.On that Friday a young mother who works in the preschool class at our schools,husband came and picked their two children up from school early that day.They have a 7 year old boy and a 3 year old girl.Dad was on the way home with the children,about 1 1/2 miles from the school the truck hit a water puddle in the road and he started hydroplaneing.The truck started spinning and landed upside a tree.Dad and the little girl were fine,but sad part is the little boy was killed in this accident.It was a terrible thing for this young family to go through.So that brings me to my preschool day.They needed volunteers to watch the students on Monday so the teachers could go to the funeral and be there for the mom who worked with them.Wow have you ever sat with about twenty five 3 and 4 year olds,it is quite an experience let me tell you.We started the day with feeding them breakfast,from there we went into art time.The children decorated pumpkins with paper and glue (messy).Then I sat them in a circle in the reading center and read them a book,now it is lunch time.Now this was a treat,with kids saying I do not like this,I don't want that,can I have more of this.Finally lunch is over and it is nap time,Quite time for the teachers.

By the time this day was over I was so tired all I wanted was a nap,but I do have great appreciation for preschool teachers because they have their hands full.

I want to tell a little more on this accident story from our community.This happen to be the second 7 year old little boy that was killed in a car wreck in our community in 8 months.The other one was back in early summer,he and his mother were hit by a man driving under the influence of prescription drugs.They were both mom and son killed in this accident.In both accidents neither little boy was wearing a seat belt,I do not know if that would have saved either child,but moms and dads please seat belt your children when you put them in a car to go somewhere.We have two young families in our community now living in a world of heart break and sorrow,and siblings that do not really understand why they no longer have their brothers with them.So PLEASE PLEASE put your little ones in a car seat or seat belt,or you could be the one that has to live with a broken heart that will never mend over the loss of your baby.It only takes a minute to have a wreck,but it only takes a minute to buckle them up.

Some of my favorite flowers

Shasta Daisy
Daisies are so pretty ,you can put them in most any flower
and they will just stand out .The white brings a bright spot
to any place in the yard.


This was grown from seed,I planted the seed straight in the outside

bed and they grew so well.Every time I try to start early indoors

in peat pots they die.So I started just putting them in the ground

where I want them to grow.

This plant has so many different varieties that you n get,this is
my first time to grow lavender,but there will e a new variety
growing beside this one next summer.It brings beauty and
fragrance to any sunny spot.
I think everyone should have a flower garden to gaze at.It it is a amazing thing to watch grow.
You plant a small plant or a seed and then watch in amazement as it becomes a beautiful
flower or tree.I plant perennials in my beds because the come back year after year,and year after year they multiply.They are a great way of sharing plants with friends and family.My daughter got her a new trailer last year and we have been digging up from my beds and starting her beds at her house.It saves lot of money to share,since flowers are truly expensive.
Now I do love annuals there are some really pretty ones,and if you get the right ones they will reseed themselves.Like the asters and the zinnias that I grow.Gardening is alot of work ,but it is rewarding work also.Once you see the beautiful flowers and trees growing in your yard you will be so delighted.
My mom gave me a red bud tree this year that she had rooted,but she said not to put it in the ground till Nov.I am anxiously awaiting the time to plant it and the reward of seeing it come spring.I know they only bloom for a short time but they are truly awesome when they are in bloom.I am also going to get a dogwood to plant with my red bud ,they look so wonderful together.

I will get out more pics of my flowers to post again later.I have flowers that I have bought and some given to me by friends and from family.Those given to you out of friendship and from family(especially MOM's) are the rarest treasures you can grow.Then when your daughter's begin to start their adventure in gardening you can pass a cutting down to her,a great way to keep a special flower growing forever.Then when her daughter or even son gets out on their own she can pass it on to them.
Gardening is one of the greatest gifts God has given us,To put a seed or small plant,or sapling in the ground and see his wonder.God has made a lot of beautiful,wonderful things and shared with us and gardening is one of the greatest.We get to watch his wonderful creations grow right before our eyes everyday.Gardening i good for the heart and soul,it relaxes you,it makes you smile,it gives you something to share with the ones you love.And on top of all that it is great exercise that you do without thinking of it being exercise,and that is something we all need.

So remember God has shared with us some of his most awesome creations to beautify our lives and to share with others.So hare a piece of your garden with a family member or a friend.You could even share it with a stranger to put a smile on their face,you never know they may need a

Japanese Magnolia
I think this one of the most beautiful trees you can
grow in your yard for flowering affect.The flowers are magnificent
as well as the large leaves. It really is a stunning tree.
