Grass

We finally had a bit of a break in the weather.  It was still cloudy and overcast, but it was warm enough to be outside for awhile after dinner.  Keith and I took the kids and the dog outside. 

While the boys were playing in the yard, Caleb made a discovery. 

He's walking along the edge of our yard near our neighbors yard when he turns to me and says, "Mommy, I know how to tell what's the neighbor's yard and our yard!" 

Me: "Oh yeah honey? How's that?"

Caleb says "look mommy! Their grass is dark green and ours is just light green and yellow."

That 4 year old of mine, so insightful. 

Our neighbor is meticulous about his yard and garden.  He mows weekly with a push mower and a riding mower and has it treated regularly.  Or yard, while we're lucky if we can grow grass.  Our lawn is patchy and pathetic.  Sadly even though even our 4 year old notices how terrible our lawn is, I wouldn't expect anything to change anytime soon!
