Signs of Summer

Just had to show what we've been enjoying!!

I even made a few jars of delicious strawberry jam. Khara and Kelsey got there first lesson in making jam--they loved it!! Made me a little nervous, "Pleeeasse don't burn yourself, it is realllly hot!!". They smashed, stirred, added sugar...Khara even wanted to ladle the hot jam into the jars, that's where I drew the line. :-) It sure tasted yummy on biscuits last night that we had for supper!!

I'll be taking a short leave from the blogging world. We are leaving for Michigan in a couple of hours. Mark's niece, Amanda, graduated from high school so we are going up to help her celebrate!! I hope to have lots of pictures to post when I return. We will be spending the weekend there. Mark is on vacation next week so we will be able to take our time coming home, a rare blessing!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Misty said...

Yum! I love fresh strawberries! And, the jam (although putting all the sugar in makes me cringe a little :-))

Enjoy it!
