In an effort to have Gus socialize with other kids his own age, I've been taking him to library programs basically since he turned one.  This past May, one of the themes of the day was flowers, and as a final activity, the kids got to plant a sunflower seed in a styrofoam cup, which was fun for Gus and he got to mess around with some dirt.

Fast forward:

The seed is now probably about a 6-to-7-foot-tall plant with is beautiful flower right at the top, getting so big it's pulling the stake over.  Now I just need to see when's the right time to pull the seeds out of it!

P.S. Don't forget: tomorrow is the first Pinterest link-up!  If you've tried something from your Pinterest boards this week and blogged about it, come back to post your link.  I'm excited to see what other people have been working on!
