Our Strawberry Girl!
Our Strawberry Girl!
This week in conjunction with studying the southern states and reading Strawberry Girl, we took a trip to a local strawberry field to have some 'U-pick fun'!

My kids got to see varying degrees of ripe fruit on the plants.
Very cool!

Also this week, we tried our hand at making our own fossils using Playdoh and Plaster of Paris.  Though we had mixed results, we all had fun!


  1. Strawberries already?? Wow! I thought we got them early in Louisiana but not in January. Awesome! Just popped in from Mosaic reviews :)

  2. I'm jealous of your strawberries! We have to wait until July to go picking up here in WI.

  3. Saying hey! Making the rounds from MR! :) Have a great weekend! :) I love strawberries!! Not sure when the time is in NC, we just moved here, but I will have to find out!

  4. We went picking the week before Christmas, but I need to go again. Love the early berries. They were SO big and sweet.
