Thankfully, two of the tomato plants that Betsy gave the girls survived. We planted them outside this week and even got them each one of those cage things from Wal-mart. They seem to be thriving.
The girls have been outside checking on them every day. They are a little disappointed that we aren't letting them water them constantly, but I felt bad for the poor plants when they were sitting in a two inch deep swamp.
Digging holes to plant them seems to have inspired the girls. They spent today outside playing icecream truck. They dug holes all over the yard and scooped the dirt into the back of a plastic ride-on car they have out there. Then Danya pushed Gloria around the yard in it while singing and pretending they were selling chocolate ice cream.
