Yesterday was a lovely day. We had our first meeting of our Five in a Row homeschool group. We met at a wonderful local park (Pullen) that has rides in addition to a great playspace. We had thought it might rain and it looked very threatening on our drive over. Instead, we enjoyed cooler than usual temps - and a gorgeous day!
It was fun to welcome 3 new families to our group and to see old friends as well. I enjoy our field trips and outings so much and I'm glad to get back to them. We typically go on field trips every other week with this group. It's a really special group of friends for whom I've very thankful.
The children had a great time running around and playing. Christopher did a great job taking a wide variety of photos of all of the children. He is going to help with photography for our group's yearbook. I think he has a good eye.
After the park, I wanted to run by the Farmer's Market since we were so close. It was a quick trip due to some sleepers, but we did manage to buy some yummy things.
Hmm ... can you tell what this is - or how much of it?
I know this doesn't look like a lot - but it's 65 ears of corn. I thought I'd try my hand at putting some in the freezer. I did about 25 ears last night with Roger's help. I finished the rest tonight with a friends help. The corn tastes sweet and yummy! I hope we'll enjoy it.
More later. It's late now and I need to get some sleep. We've had a busy week and I have more I'd like to share.
