"We need not be casualties of war but warriors wounded in battle who will heal and rise stronger than before. The promise of ever after, especially with our families, is that while the battles may never stop, neither will the victories."
I love flowers as many of you know and so of course I think planting flowers is a fun family activity that you should all try. I suppose you could plant veggies or herbs if you'd rather. All you need is potting soil, seeds or plants, and containers to put them in. A little Miracle Grow wouldn't hurt either. I think its fun to let the kids do their own seed or flower in a cup but you can easily plant many flowers in one pot, which is what we did. The kids gathered rocks to put at the bottom of our containers that didn't have drain holes. They also did a great job helping us make a mess with the dirt. The outcome was beautiful.
