Monday was our annual strawberry picking at Bjornstad Farms. I tried to explain to my children I didn’t want them to pick too many. Unfortunately, their buckets were bigger than my ambition and we ended up with over 50 pounds. I did not want to make jam. Not because I don’t totally love homemade freezer jam, but because I am still feeling overwhelmed and like I haven’t found my summer groove.
Guess what I did yesterday? Um-hm…I made jam.
I might have had a child so grumpy he refused to get out of the van. Apollo might have cried and whined to leave. I might have done more picture-taking than strawberry picking. But you now what? I definitely made some fun memories with my children.
