Mum's the word

For Family Home Evening last night we planted chrysanthemums.  The kids took turns digging holes, breaking up the root-bound plants, placing dirt around the planted flowers, and fertilizing the plants.  While they worked, Garry and I talked to the kids about nurturing our faith and testimonies like we would the plants in our garden.  We related scriptures from Alma 32 and Jacob 5 in the Book of Mormon.  And we taught them a little bit about gardening along the way.

This also was our sneaky method of completing some yard work!  I love the happy blooms so much.
