This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Strawberry Fun

We are some pick your own kind of people.  I can't think of anything bad about it, except the seasons are just too short!
We learned this year that Maggie can sit in her own berry box and just chow down while we work.
They have all put in some effort this year.  Not just eating.  We are still picking about the same amount, but the time goes by so much faster.
Liv didn't work as long as George.  She took a camera break.  How do I know?  I see lots of pics I could have taken then I come across this one....
I still laugh that she knows how to do this.
We packed a lunch and found a shady spot under a willow tree by the pond.  
(Notice his hair?  I'm posting a little out of order since I forgot a file of pictures!)
We love Lohr's Orchard for strawberries, apples and pumpkins because it so small and quiet.  Perfect for a man that needs to stay away from crowds.  Oh, and he can't eat any of the fresh picked goodies either!  Doctor's orders.  I never knew I would hear a Doctor say not to eat your fruits or veggies.
