One of the things this family will miss most when summer fades into fall is the abundance of inexpensive (relatively speaking, that is) fresh fruit! As the kids and I were eating our lunch today, Gray asked me why I only put four kinds of fruit in our salad.
I suppose I could have "embellished" a bit and told him I didn't want to overwhelm our tastebuds, but I was honest and told him that I got lazy. He said, "Well, we could have had a lot more kinds in there if not for that lazy streak. Let's make a list."
Make a list. Yep, he's my boy for sure! (I even had to forgive him the "lazy streak" remark when he brought up making a list!)
So, here's the list of fresh fruits in our house at this moment:
--apples (both Granny Smiths and some red kind)
And the ones most people call vegetables:
Yes, we do love our fruit. Rich and I still smile when we think back to when Gray was in kindergarten. Each kiddo had to write a sentence about what they were thankful for and, of course, draw a picture to go with it. When you walked down the hall outside Gray's classroom, you got to view lots of "I'm thankful for my family."s, a couple "I'm thankful for my dog.", an "I'm thankful for TV.", and Gray's "I'm thankful for fruit."
Yep, me too, sweetheart.
