• Blueberry Day

    I think the whole neighborhood heard Lucas’ shriek when I asked him if he would like blueberries in his smoothie yesterday morning.  After being deprived of his favorite food for two weeks, he was ecstatic to be reunited with those tasty little berries.  After the smoothie he asked for trail mix (with dried blueberries) and happily chomped on them for about a half an hour.  He successfully snuck them into quite a few snacks by the time the day was over.

Mom, can you buy some of those corn nuts at the farm today? …
