Day 88: Harvesting Strawberries

Thank goodness, it's Friday. Our weeks are quite busy again, which is a blessing, but it is also tiring. So by the end of the week, I am glad that we are only doing school for four days a week. Today, we went to a local farm to pick strawberries. It was already the end of the season, so our harvest was not great, but the kids still had fun chasing the good berries with their friends. They kept at it for about an hour and a half, which I think is great for their ages. We got two big boxes full to take home and eat. Yummy.

I was especially happy that my Munchkin left the Ergo to help harvest. Unfortunately, it was a short harvesting fun for her as she fell into the mud. She was covered from toe to shoulders - I was so thankful that her hands and hair had not gotten any of the mud. So I needed to bring her to the car, trying to take all her clothes off without getting it into her hair. I had just put a second shirt into her bag in the morning, so at least she was clothed on the top, but unfortunately, the bottom stayed quite 'naked'. So I had to put her back into the Ergo, carry her around for the rest of the field trip and to lunch, which we shared with our friends as well. She is a trooper.
