A few weeks ago the kids & I headed out on a berry picking adventure. I was more interested in the experience for the kids than I was in getting a lot of berries, & it’s a good thing that was my aim!
I had instructed Asher to only pick red berries. Then I had to tell him all the colours to leave in the field, “Leave the green, white & pink berries because they aren’t ready yet. Only pick the bright red berries because they are the best!”
Asher followed all the instructions with a question, “What if I find a black strawberry?”
For every 3 strawberries I picked, Chancery stole 2 out of the bucket. It’s a good thing they didn’t weigh her before & after!
We had a great time on our berry picking adventure, & we even brought a few home for Daddy! Maybe next year we’ll get enough to make a pie!
