Strawberry Picking in October?!

 Yes, Please!!  A friend of mine treated us to some very yummy late in the season strawberries.  What a way to start the day.  We brought them home and the kids helped hull them and get them packed into the freezer.

Later my friend Anne popped in with fresh green and yellow beans and cherry tomatoes!  It was a Home Ec. kinda day as the kids continued to help get the fresh produce ready for freezing.  It's going to be a very yummy winter in the Peric household!

In the afternoon a new friend popped in to talk about homeschooling and how to get started.  I love meeting new people and helping them on their homeschooling journey.  Hopefully what I shared will help and not overwhelm her.

With the day being so wonderfully bright and warm I took the kids down to the waterfront for some exploring.  Nate and Emma-Lyn brought their bikes while Sean, Levi and I walked.  Levi kept up a steady stream of chatter as we walked.

It was so lovely just to soak up some sunshine and just let the kids wander about.  While we may have let a day at the books slip by we certainly filled the day with good things to eat and good things to do.

 So delicious!

 One very happy strawberry picker!

 Down at the waterfront.

Oh, and we made a yummy strawberry apple crisp!  So yummy!
