This weekend we got back to basics. We seem to do that when we visit my parents. Not only is it being with family but the things we do as a family. For some reason seeing the kids and my Eric participate in something that I did every year of my childhood brought a smile to my face. And of course I had to break out the camera!
It was day with no electronics, no phones or anything of that. The kids and Eric did learn a thing or two about growing and harvesting your own food! Eric also learned a few terms of the south I guess you could say. We were picking the green beans which were on their last leg and produced about all they could. It was either my sister or my dad that said "There is enough there for a good mess." Eric of course gets the puzzled look on his face and asks me "Ok let me pretend that I am from the city and I have no idea what was just said, what in the heck is a mess." We all look at him like he is crazy and I bust out laughing. For those of you that don't know what this term means, it means you have enough for a meal....Showing my family how our family functioned while growing up makes me feel like I am accomplishing something. I think it is an important skill to know how to grow, harvest and cook your own food!
