Ten Trees: A Boy and His Shovel

Ten Trees and one small boy ...


And his little shovel ...
 

And his pails of water ... 


And his flags, with one tree ready to go in the hole already dug! ...

One little boy and his mom ... planting 10 small trees ... which will someday be big trees ... like this small boy will someday will be a big boy ... a man ... planting 10 small trees with his little boy ...

What a blessing to spend yesterday afternoon planting 10 blue spruce seedlings from Grandma LaVerne's Arbor Day Membership that she gifted directly to us. Three generations, a grandma who gifted, a  mom who dug the holes, a boy who placed the trees ... all going forward in hope that the trees will hopefully grow for many generations to come.
