On the way back from dropping Phoebe off at camp, we noticed a sign for blackberry picking. The boys were with me, so we stopped and picked about a pound of berries. It was $4 or something like that, so not expensive. It's not quite like finding them wild in the woods and having to throw yourself up against the prickly bushes to try to reach that one wa-ay in the back, but it was still a fun experience. I made blackberry cobbler the next day ~ a quite delicious way to eat blackberries.
There was a three night VBS type deal that Oak Hills does throughout San Antonio. The closest one to us was done at a gymnastics place, and it was close enough that I felt comfortable inviting the neighbor kids and driving them all there too. Jonathan was there to help me out since I wasn't sure how all the kids would act. They all did great though! They learned "Jesus Loves Me" and "As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34b" and new Bible stories.
I noticed that they all had brown eyes, so I told them to show off their eyes.
And Liz and Jon bought tickets months ago to attend a 21 Pilots concert here in town. I also bought a ticket, because I wasn't going to let them go alone. I told them if they found an adult who wanted to go though, by all means, offer them the ticket. And their youth minister was glad to take them! Yes! I think a ticket to a 21 Pilots concert would be wasted on their mother.
Friend Augusta went also.
Don't ask about the tape and stuff. I don't know what it all means, but there is a lot of swag that goes along with 21 Pilots.
Jonathan's first words to me the next morning were, "I don't think I'd do that again, but I enjoyed it." The lights seemed to bother him more than the loud noise did.
Liz' first words were, "Next time we're going to get floor tickets!"
