That is what Mitchell told us after he ate his way through the strawberry patch. We seem to have started, inadvertently, making family field trips every Thursday. This week was strawberry picking and baby animals...last week was the beach...the week before Avery got to go geocaching with daddy...the week before we all went geocaching...and i think the week before that we went to the amusement park.
I imagined much more enthusiasm. Not that they did not want to do it or want to help, it just was a little harder than i thought it would be. We did pick it fast though. We had two full buckets before we even picked down half of one row. Mitchie just wanted to eat them and carry the bucket...Avery, well she was picking with great care. In the time i picked half a bucket i think she had five in hers...because she was examining every berry to make sure that it was blemish free and perfect in every way! And, believe it or not Avery wore white and there was not a single berry stain on that girl.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
