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!
