This year we got our biggest crop of cherries yet:
|Most of the crop filled up my biggest silver bowl.|
|After a long pitting session, the girls and I made...|
|And a cherry pie.|
|It was good!|
We have a bunch of wild mulberry trees near the pond and off into our woodsy area. I told the kids that if they picked enough mulberries, I would make them some mulberry jam.
|And here it is.|
|We also made some mulberry muffins, which did not last long.|
From Monday through Thursday, Dominic and Joseph attended a basketball clinic at the YMCA for 2 hours every afternoon. They liked having a chance to work on their skills. While they were at the clinic, I took the rest of the kids to the outside pool each day.
|Dominic went for the shot.|
At the end of the week, Dan began making batches of homemade silly putty/goop for the kids. They had a lot of fun with it.
|Catherine was able to blow a giant bubble with hers.|
|They all came to see.|
|Pop! There it goes!|
We began to get a lot of snow peas:
|Bucket is full!|
That weekend was warm, so the kids played in the sprinkler one afternoon:
|Anthony, Joseph, and Anne cooled off.|
