Last fall, the kids and I discovered this book: Sunflower House by Eve Bunting. They wanted to read it many times. And then, they wanted to plant their very own Sunflower House.
They patiently waited for the arrival of summer, sunflower time. Repeatedly, they reminded me "Don't forget about the Sunflower House! Don't forget to buy seeds." In June, I dug up the soil for the sunflower seeds and the kids joyfully planted.
The sunflowers are growing quickly. We are curious when the blossoms will appear. Anna decided she could be the blossom for now. "Look, Mom, I'm a sunflower!" "Why yes, you are my darling girl! Keep on growing and blooming. I'll try to provide enough water and nutrients. Let Jesus be your sunshine!"
