Am I the only one who is SO ready for spring? I decided today to do a little early planting with Charlie and Maddie and enjoy checking out the fruits of our labor for the remainder of this dreary winter.
All we did was take a glass container (I bought this one at Pottery Barn years ago and use it year-round for different decorations), fill it with glass beads, stick some calla lily bulbs down into the beads, and add a little water. This would be really cute in mason jars or any type of glass vase or pitcher.
Charlie was being silly for the camera so I had to include some pics of his hilarious self.
This was really fun to do with the kids and I know they’ll be so excited when the flowers start growing. We’re definitely going to have to talk about planting seeds in people by talking about Jesus (Matt 28:19) and also how seeds grow into big, beautiful things (Matt 13: 30-32). Springtime is such a wonderful opportunity to teach about God’s love for us and how his love is expressed in nature.
I’ll post some pics of our flowers when they bloom!
Addison has that same outfit that Maddie has on!
