This weekend we picked strawberries, lots and lots of them. Ten pounds. I then attempted jam with not so great results(did not boil long enough). Well, we have jars and jars of strawberry syrup for pancakes, ice cream etc. But I have enough to try again, once I can get ahold of some more jars and lids and time. Last year I boiled the raspberries too long, it is all trial and error I guess.

Last Thursday was the Cowpoke Jamboree, ye-haw. So we all dressed in our cowpoke finest to attend the show and boy, was it great. Sadie's class and the other AM 4yr class got together and sang songs and danced for all us family folk. I thought it was better than the Y show.

Lastly, the eagerly awaited thrill of the summer has arrived, twinkling and sparkling in the shadows, the fireflies are here! Sunday night we went out after everyone was ready for bed to catch a few and watch the show.

In this last one, we caught the magic of the little lights.
