(Strawberry) Harvest Party!

Sunday morning Lauryn and I were walking around...checking out all our plants. This year she has four pots that she planted and is responsible for--two pots of strawberries, one of tomatoes, and one with flowers. We discovered that her first strawberry was ready to be picked. Those of you that know Lauryn know she likes to throw parties for any reason. She said, "Mom...we can't pick it without having a celebration." She went inside and brought out a box of decorations and some paper to write her speech. She kept herself quite busy while I worked on trimming up some plants. Lauryn would make a great event planner.

My parents came out and we all sat around "the plant". Lauryn prepared a cute speech, cut the strawberry into 8 (very small) pieces to share, and we ate strawberry fruit bars. It was a pretty quick little ceremony but oh-so-special.



Here she is getting the bench decorated for the celebration.

The first strawberry. Isn't it a beauty?

That is so sweet! Your daughter is so fun! Nice of your parents to come over for the special strawberry!

I'm sure all the kids are sad that you don't teach any 8th grade classes. I know Evan sure loved you as a teacher!
