We had a blast today picking berries. On our way to the farm, my city children were peppering me with questions about where we were headed. After I said we were going to a farm, K said, "Will there be cowboys there?" I explained that it wasn't that kind of farm. But I do think it's good for us to spend a bit of productive time in nature so that my children learn more about where their food comes from and the work that is required to grow it. It's a huge bonus that we get to have fun along the way. A sampling from today, courtesy of kind friends who not only bring, but use, their cameras:
If you weren't able to join us today, I encourage you to go sometime this month. We went to Fisher's Farm in Springfield, but there are plenty of options in our area. Let me know if you'd like more info!
