Berry Picking

One of the great things about Lancaster County is all the opportunities we have to teach our children about rural life.  Although our home is in a small development, we live within walking distance of several farms including ones that raise cows, corn and even peaches.  A few weeks ago, I began taking the boys to pick berries at a local berry farm.  First came strawberries, last week was red raspberries and yesterday evening, we picked blueberries.  Each time we finish picking berries, Aidan, who is 5, declares that it is the most fun he has had!  His enthusiasm always encourages me initiate hands-on learning-in-nature activities.
