I got up this morning and went out and picked rasberries and then made a batch of jam using SureJell. The SureJell is more expensive the regular pectin, but is sure easy. Since I get the rasberries for free and store bought jam is so expensive, I imagine the price is still good. The SureJell is much more family friendly. I only have to spend about five minutes in the kitchen while making it. I will keep on making a batch a day as the rasberries ripen.
I gave the boys the extra rasberries I picked for breakfast and then I let them lick the jam left over after I spooned it into the freezer container.
We went to the neighborhood park yesturday to let the kids play and eat lunch and while we were there, a group of friends from church showed up and it turns out they have having a woman's Bible study there every week while the kids play. They invited me to join the group and I am going to since it is so close to my house, the time is great and Christian gets a weekly play date with his friends. This is also the park were we go swimming, so we can hit the pool after Bible study most weeks.
The park system has a summer program. They fill the wading pools, have games and arts and crafts. Liam enjoys getting some art time.
Our cat Luna was stiking poses on Saturday night when it was so hot and I grabbed so pictures.
