Breathe, breathe in the air

We've been going green in our household lately. Spring certainly invokes all manner of earthy sentimentality anyway. Since we are now proud homeowners, we get to think about all sorts of lovely things like lawn maintenance.

In an effort to show our love and support for Mother Earth, we have selected to manual operated lawn mower. It's actually really easy and fun to use! Plus, there are no loud noises to wake up napping babies, no having to run to the Shell station to get gas, etc. Win win right? We think so. It's nice to feel like we are doing our part, plus Jude will grow up seeing us doing at least something right by this old world.

After all, our little future Dentonite hippie needs to know about all things earth loving. I mean all his future classmates will grow up the same way theoretically.

Have I mentioned I love being in Denton? I really do. It has the best of all things American. We are close to Dallas. We have a cute little old fashioned downtown square. There's plenty of festivals and live music. There's plenty of hippies and eclectic folk. Plus we have a great church. What more could you ask for our of life?

On a side note, our yard was full of bluebonnet plants. How to you let bluebonnets grow a foot tall all over your yard without looking raggedy. Literally. We had no grass out front. Just bluebonnet plants. We obviously cut them. I need a botanist to help me deal with our yard plants. Let me know if you are willing.
