"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

Eating in Season

A big hello (some long over due) to our newest followers..... Eva, Richard, Raising & Teaching Little Saints, Jessica, Sancta Risus, Jen, and Giuseppe Ambrose!  We are so glad you've joined us!

Welcome to our blog! I hope you will stop in regularly and walk away with even the smallest bit of new information or at least a smile. This blog has a mind of its own, for sure. I write about more than i had planned to and on everything from homeschooling to parenting, feast days to our family life in general. Lately its been more just life in general as school and sports are winding down....

Please feel free to comment, but also to ask questions.

Eating in Season...no fancy ideas or suggestions, just us enjoying God's bounty!  We wrote about strawberry picking some time last month (it might have just been a quick note buried in a post) and this month we had the opportunity to pick blueberries!  We never had before so this was a real treat. 

The farm was beautiful.  Just a small farm owned by grandparents of one of our homeschool group families.  Very family friendly.  Very knowledgeable and willing to teach.  We had a great time.
We picked, we ate, we came home and baked!

Thank you, Allison, for the welcome. We are members of a CSA and get local produce during the summer. Sometimes we also pick ourselves. It's so good for children to see where food comes from and how and when it grows.

We have found they definitley eat more if they pick it.
Bear at blueberries all the way home ...his tongue was purple buy the end of the ride! : )

Sound a little bit like "Blueberries for Sal."

Eva said...

I meant "sounds" of course. Your package arrived and I'll write more in an e-mail soon. Thanks again.
