Tomorrow Aaron goes back to work after having 5 weeks off. We can't believe that it's been that long since Noah first went into ICU. We had three huge things on in the three weeks after Noah passed away - the funeral, the Run for a Wish run and then Noah's memorial service at school, so Aaron just felt like he needed another week off before he got back in the classroom.
We've been in our 'new' house a year now and we haven't had the chance to do any garden yet, so Aaron said that he felt like getting in and doing some of the garden after being inspired by Noah's beautiful memorial garden at school. Aaron slaved away all week digging up the awful clay, carting it away with many trips to the tip, marking out the bed with a border, filling it with top soil (with some help from me :) and then we planted it out together.
Pop's river and grabbed a few rocks. It was such a beautiful day, and was so nice to sit on the bridge and remember the good old days with Pop down there on his land rover with all the grandkids swimming at the swimming hole (and Nan squeeling as she jumped in the cold water).
