It has been a long few weeks at work for me. We have been testing for 3 weeks now and we are all exhausted! Today was especially long! I just needed to relax. I needed to stop and pick the cheeries! The wee ones and I have been watching the cheeries since they first popped out, patiently (and not so patiently waiting for them to ripen). We have learned that you have to pick them at just the right time or the birds will eat them all! As we pulled in the driveway, the kids noticed that the cheeries were RED! They begged to pick them. Don't the cheeries look like they are begging to be picked?
They were very into the task at hand
This is one of my favorite pictures of the day. I remember on my trips to China that you would see young children and adults squatting for a variety of activites from working to having a conversation. It amazed me how they squatted for so long. I watched her as she picked the cherries in this position and was transported back to China.
