Weekend Gardener

Brian finally got his garden in this weekend. Better late than never, right?! Clayton decided he could help with a couple of plants, and he did really well except for one little part. The preparation was easy for him:
But Daddy had to step in for the actual planting--the sensory issues kicked in big time and Clayton decided he wanted nothing to do with touching the dirt. Well, he did spend this time picking up miniscule pieces of dirt off of the canvas he was sitting on--again, one of his hangups--gotta have everything cleaned off!
But once the actual planting was done, he was back to being a big helper!

I bet he is going to love eating the food from the garden. I plant only a few items and my 3 year old loves to help me pick the veggies for our dinners and then tell everyone she grew them. It's a lot of fun!

I love seeing special needs kids out doing stuff that some people might think they cannot do. It is so awesome.

What great photos! How wonderful that your husband took the extra time to let Clayton help instead of getting caught up in getting it done faster! Clayton looks like he is really enjoying himself. He will be so proud when the items he helped to plant start growing.
