A must watch video

Just a warning, this is a bit more serious that the rest of our blog has been. Gianna Jessen is the speaker and she is an abortion survivor, that has an amazing story about life. I saw this on another blog and thought she was worth watching. It is about 10 minutes long.

Marshmallow Garden

The other day Andrew was reading in one of his books about this farmer that everyone teased. This farmer wore flip flops and shorts unlike other farmers, and while other farmers were planting corn and beans he was working on a marshmallow garden. Andrew of course wanted to try it. In the mist of getting all the ingredients together, I over heard Andrew talking about it with Jas-I could tell Jas thought this was the most ridiculous thing to try-so I stepped in and said "of course you should try it". Jasper wanted to give Andrew all the scientific reasons that this was NOT going to work. A few days later we were off to plant the marshmallow garden. The steps are very simple, pump air into the ground with a hand pump and then sprinkle with powered sugar, wait over night for your marshmallows to pop through the ground and enjoy eating them. Here are a few pictures, getting air into the ground, sprinkling powered sugar and then getting up early to see if his experiment worked. He said the marshmallows tasted like the regular ones, he just had to cut off some dirt. Kids are fun. Some day he will look back on this and laugh...probably be mad at me for not telling him it really wasn't possible.
