Planting a Tree

For my up-coming birthday, Nana bought me a Crepe Myrtle tree to go in our front yard.  I’ve been wanting to put one there for a while, so I’m super excited about it!  Everyone worked together to get it put in the ground perfect.  They prepped the spot by removing weeds


and wetting the ground.


Nathan carefully put it in


and they all packed the earth around it.


Then Mandy gave it a really good watering


and Layton made sure it had lots of good fertilizer.


I’m hoping it grows quickly and that in just a few years we’ll have a big beautiful tree in our front yard!
