The boys were on the front page of our local newspaper!
A few weeks earlier, a photographer for the paper visited our home and the boys’ gardens for a photo opp. The boys posed inside with an abundance of their produce (and silliness), and then they had pictures taken outside in their gardens.
The following week, a reporter came and interviewed the boys about their favorite plants, unexpected difficulties, and what they learned about gardening.
And then last week, the article was published! We went to the local grocery store and each boy purchased a copy. Then we took the paper to a park to read. The boys were thrilled, and I was asked by a boy more than once if they were famous.
“For one day,” was my response.
This will be a wonderful memory and keepsake for my growing boys.
