Red, White, & Blueberries!

Red, White, & Blueberries!

It's the 4th of July, which means summertime is in full swing!

We've been talking about taking the girls to pick blueberries for a while now. Now that blueberry season is here, and Liberty Farms being so close to home, we were able to take advantage of their fresh abundance of berries last Friday. Luckily, we picked an unusually cool morning (for July, anyways) to go, which made it all the more enjoyable! The girls were so excited, even about choosing their own bucket! Summer breeze, laughter, and handfuls of yummy blueberries... combine that with some harmless little stains and you have a great morning of picking blueberries! This was such a simple but fun activity that we were able to enjoy as a family! Since it was so close to the 4th of July, they just had to wear red, white, and blue and have their pictures taken!  

The plan is to enjoy these yummy blueberries in a delicious blue berry dump cake today when we celebrate the 4th with our family. And, of course, the girls have requested blueberry pancakes! 

As we celebrate today, we are thankful for the freedom we have in our country, and we are also reminded of the freedom we have from our sin through Jesus Christ! Amen!

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
— Romans 8:2 (ESV)
