The picking spot was pretty far out, so we got a ride on a golf cart, which the kids loved!
Riding out to the field
The kids are Such good pickers!
I had a picture of Moriah too, but unfortunately her eyes were closed...
Our row had mostly small berries (and most of them had a "seed pod" on the bottom of each berry, which I really don't like, but we did okay...
With our pickin's - almost 12 pounds!
We payed $2.50 a pound and I noticed at the grocery store after that there's were 1.99, but the ones that we picked really Did taste AMAZING.
I made three jars of jam for the fam and one (no sugar strawberry/apple) one for me and we gave a bunch of the berries to our Ugandan friends.
We had a great visit with the Winny family on Saturday afternoon (and took them a bunch of strawberries). I feel like we got to know a lot about them this time. Jane made us some Delicious African food! She made "Posho" (another name for Ugali), which is made with cornmeal and is a thick, slightly sticky texture. You just get a big hunk of it and break pieces off and dip them in the sauce or juice from your meat (which was beef in a delicious tomato based sauce). She also made a spinach, onion and tomato dish that was really good.
On Sunday, the kids had their AWANA closing ceremony:
Caleb with his Cubbies class
Moriah in Sparks
Keenan (as well as Jade and Eden) in T&T (Truth and Training)
At home with their awards
(Caleb was Not happy about having to take this picture)
