"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Picking Something Other Than Their Noses.

Our dear sweet friends, the Stolz's, invited us to come to what I thought was their backyard blackberry patch. Little did I realize, it was like a miniature forest on the own property complete with trails and surprises. Due to the drought here in Texas, we knew the blackberries would be few and far between but the boys had a blast going on a berry hunt. While blackberries are not as fun to pick as strawberries or blueberries, because of their thorny nature, it was even more rewarding to pick something we had to be so careful instead of careless about.

Jacob enjoyed leading us through the trails to where the "jackpots" were. Nathan was a little concerned about getting lost and Austin was perfectly content following.

For most of our trip, Austin didn't realize what we were doing. Finally he saw that we were picking berries and some how he got the bright idea to try one. After that, it was all over. He might have ate more than we actually picked! Ha.
