While the guys were off doing their thing Anita and I made Jam. She has wanted to learn and she froze her fruit last fall for the perfect lesson time and today was it. She had blackberries and Italian Prunes. We made 2 double batches of Italian prune (plum) jam and 1 single batch of blackberry. We were very proud of ourselves. I talked/showed the first one, kind of helped with the second and the third Anita did herself. I'm very proud of her. I loved teaching her something I have loved doing.

Today when Anita and I were at the store getting the last of her
supplies that she needed I was pushing Eli in the cart and a very nice
young man ( late teens?) walked by us and looked me in the eye and
said Happy Mother's Day. It was so nice. Anita and I said His mother
would be SO proud! So to all you mothers..... Happy Mother's day.
Have a wonderful day.
*edit* After I posted this I realized I had not taken one picture of Dru!
For shame! I'm sorry Dru. :(
