It was hot, so we went to hang out in Xander and Zee's pool. The plan was to pick a few cherries, but between a wobbly ladder that the kids REALLY wanted to climb and much fewer cherries than last year, we only picked a very small amount. The kids enjoyed washing and pitting them very much (Matthew has learned how to use a pitter! Eek!). Perhaps the fact that I still have a year's supply of last year's fruit in the freezer may have impacted our enthusiasm. Besides, it was more fun to try to get a picture of the self-inflating ball ;)
My garden is really taking off. The sunflower is about as tall as Elizabeth. I'm really enjoying watching the corn grow - I've never really seen what it looks like as a young plant before. It's a fascinating plant.
