We spent a beautiful morning picking cherries yesterday. The picking was slim (mostly under the tree and way up high on the ladder), but the weather was amazing and we still had fun. We love cherry smoothies and cherry pies from our frozen cherries!! We love summer in Michigan! About 3:00 Noah decided he wanted cheese soup for dinner (not a typical July dinner, but it sounded good!). We were downtown and were surprised to find one farmer left at the market who could provide us with the celery, onions, and potatoes that we needed. We had carrots from the market earlier in the week. That evening all three kids washed, cut and prepped ALL of the ingredients for our amazing soup. Before we ate we bowed our heads and thanked God for those who had grown, harvested and prepared our food...we are thankful.
