Not the best picture...but here we all are after we finished. We picked almost two boxes worth of strawberries. One box has already been separated and frozen, ready for smoothies when strawberries are no longer in season. The other box we will be for juicing this week...yummy!
My fantastic husband...looking great after he hit his first weight loss goal-50 pounds.
The girls...with the funniest looks on their faces. I am not sure if they liked the picking as much as the boys.
When I look at this picture I wonder what they are talking about...
Caleb starting with his new box...he had a good time picking the strawberries.
William stopped for a moment for me to snap a picture. The boys loved the open fields and the small farm.
What a great day for strawberry picking. We found a great little farm about an hour away from our house and headed over their yesterday for picking. One of my fondest memories of when I was a kid was when we went strawberry picking when I lived in New York. We went every year, and my mother would freeze a ton of strawberries for the winter ahead. So, I am so glad my kids got to experience this too. It was the perfect day...the skies were a beautiful blue and the humidity was low. The sun was shining brightly, but not enough to make you sweat too much. It was a beautiful day overall. Glad we got to do this. Our goal is to get out more...spend more time outdoors and enjoy our beautiful state. What a great way to spend St. Patricks Day!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
