Sweet Strawberries!

Okay, I confess. I played hookie from the office this afternoon to stop by the sweetest little strawberry sale this side of the Willamette River (and of course I'm not biased). On Tuesday afternoon my wife and two kids went Strawberry picking! They came home with gobs of strawberries and an idea.

My daughter Julie had the idea of making strawberry shortcake, strawberry lemonade, and strawberry jam to sell on the roadside near our house. You say, "how cute." But the deal gets sweeter. Each night before bed Julie has been fervently praying for the Brazil Team. She decided she wanted to sell the strawberry products to make money for the Brazil Team. Well, by the time I arrived to "sample" some of the products this afternoon, Julie had raised about $50 for the team!

Oh, and by the way, the shortcake was really good! : )
