How the garden tour became about Minecraft

Recently the hmmschoolers and I took a lil' time at a local garden. The boys hadn't been there since they were in strollers so everything was new and exciting.

 Hmmschooler Ooky (9) was more than a little excited. He asked me to take pictures of everything.

The fountains...

The flowerbeds...

The paths...

The arbors...

The water...

Aw, I thought. He's finally found his calling. He wants to be a landscape designer. Or a horticulturalist. Or a...

"Man, I can't wait to get home!" he said, interrupting my thoughts. "I hope you took lots of pictures for me to look at because I am totally going to build these gardens on Minecraft!"


And when we finally got home, he totally did. :)


  1. Maybe Minecraft will be the new way they design landscapes. It's funny how they see everything as blocks now, I wonder if that is how kids where when Legos first came out.

  2. Lol! Mitch said the same thing almost when we were at the Oliver Kelly Farm.

  3. kids seem to turn just about anything they can into this! ��

  4. Cool! Minecraft really is like the new digital legos. My son builds some amazing things - but no garden replicas yet!

  5. That is so fun!! My 14 year old still does minecraft with a buddy of his...they have such a good time.

  6. I just found your site. I homeschool 3 boys. I love finding other moms that share the same boy adventures as I do. Blessings to you and your family. Thank you for sharing.


Hmmm...what do you have to say?
