A friend recently opened up her property for blackberry picking. We've been super busy; working hard to prepare for our move. I knew the kids would LOVE to go blackberry picking. I also knew the kids really wanted a chance to say good-bye to this friend. The problem? We had a very busy day ahead of us. The big kids all got up extra early to get things moving so that we could get out of the house and picking by 8:00.
I've got some great pickers. Miss E, Mr. M, Mr. S, and Miss J stuck with it and found so many hidden berries. They managed to pick enough that Miss E was able to make two large crisps and one small one (to freeze for during the move). Mr. R hung out with Mr. K and Miss C who were not picking. Miss A was swooped up by our dear friend and lovingly cared for while I enjoyed picking berries with the kids. It was a nice relaxing break for all of us, then we were back to the GO! GO! GO! of life.
Miss J was pleased to find that her tiny fingers could get into some tight spots. We were impressed that she was able to get as many as she did.
