It’s almost like the Lord inspired that artist to make a statue of AnnaLeah and Mary.
I planted some sunflowers behind the statue in hopes of growing some morning glories that will climb up them and put the girls in a garden. Might attract some real butterflies. Vanessa found a bug caught in the tiny butterfly net one day.
I had to thin the sunflowers today and felt bad deciding which ones would get to survive and which ones would get pulled up.
And I would have felt bad leaving the girls out in the rain except I knew that they probably would have enjoyed it–based on past experience!
