About Me

My photo

I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

Strawberries, Strawberries, Strawberries

B and I were invited to go strawberry picking last Thursday morning with 2 other homeschool moms and their children.  When we arrived, we met some other homeschool moms that we knew who had just finished picking and a few more showed up after us.  It was like a homeschool convention, one mom said!  :o)  We went to Wegmeyer Farms and I have not seen better strawberries than at this place.  We have picked at other farms in the Washington, DC area, but this has now become our favorite!  There were so many beautiful, ripe, delicious strawberries.  We picked 2 buckets and it was hard to stop picking because there were so many to choose from!

With these perfect strawberries, we made jam, shortcake, smoothies and failed at our first attempt at drying.  This post seems long enough, already, since I've posted so many pictures, so I will post what we did with our strawberries, separately.
