Here's what I did:

Thank you Martha Stewart (I think) for the lessons in flower pot filling: Thriller (Coleus), Filler (Dusty Miller), and Spiller (Sweet Potato Vine) all present and accounted for.

It went surprisingly well, with only a few little messes at the end. What you can't see in the picture is the massive "Cleaning station" at the end of the paper with soapy water in a bucket and piles of rags and ratty old towels. We also made hand and footprints on smaller pieces of paper for me to put in their baby books.
Blair even got in on the printing action - although she hated it.

(Poor Brynnie - yesterday she somehow hit herself just below her eye with her own shovel. Then to add to the indignity, she got a mosquito bite on top of the bruise.)

Then we moved on to what my husband calls my "White Trash" garden. Since getting full sun in our yard is a challenge, last year I tried container gardening in 5 gallon buckets, which I could move around as needed. I thought it was a great success, but Aaron wasn't quite as thrilled. I decided not to fill as many buckets this year, but the allure of growing my own fresh beans was too much. So, using the excuse of "science lessons", I let the kids plant four buckets with bean seeds.
