Christophers favourite item in his school lunch is a jam sandwich. But not any jam sandwich his moms strawberry jam on his sandwich. On Sunday we made our way to Bramble Berry Farms and picked enough berries to make two batches of jam.
We made a challenge between the kids. We knew that would keep them motivated especially Christopher who loves to be a winner. The tactic worked for a short while and Christopher and Charlotte worked against each other to pick the nicest berries. Sophia on the other hand a.k.a. our little director stood back and made sure her siblings were following directions. She's more of a tell you what to do type of person versus hard work type of person. I suppose the world needs leaders to :-)
The next day we cleaner berries and prepared the jam. We included Christopher in this task so he could see from start to finish how it all comes together. He is such a good helper around the house and loves to learn new things.
