We harvested all of our cherries this week. I can’t remember the name of the cherry, but it’s a pie cherry and has quite a tart taste to it. We made cherry pie filling and canned a few jars with rhubarb. They should make a nice combination, don’t you think. They both have a tartness to them. Of course the girls needed to have cherry filled crepes made also.
The harvest season is always a busy one around here. I still enjoy canning and freezing from the garden. Maybe it’s just the old-school girl in me, raised on a farm, with my mother canning all the time. Store-food just doesn’t taste the same to me.
Hi, I’m Katie, daughter of Steven and Becca. What a wild ride this summer has been for my family. Next week my kids go back to school in Kentucky and many families prepare to fall back into the same ole boring routine. This summer we have had the opportunity to take part in many new activities and have had a few unforgettable adventures. By trying something new, we have discovered new passions and learned to appreciate things that I never imagined before. Skydiving, scuba diving, paddle boarding in the ocean and hiking volcanos are just a few of the fun activities that we have tried. We tried many new foods too, I even ate a termite, which I learned is very nutritious. And we met and made friends from all over this beautiful planet.
Enjoy this truly inspiring video too.
As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.
Just then an army sergeant came in and said,
Back in time, many years ago,
when I was a little boy.
And like all kids everywhere,
I had my favorite toy.
yor’ life will be real tame.
A handshake will be good ‘nough
ta trust yor’ family name.”
Many times we wonder
When life holds us under
Why didn’t God prevent
All the heartache spent?

Thought for Today,
Remember you reap what you sow, what you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.
May your days be as special as you are.
Hot Summer Time, Steven and Becca]]>
