Five on Friday; Spark of Loves this Week

It's Friday and that means another week is done.  We are finally on the last week of our baseball games and our time seems to be slowly trickling back to where we can relax.  Two games left in the spring season of baseball, so we are a bit sad, but also glad that we can get back to having our evenings back to dinner at the table together.  This weekend is the Summer Solstice and also Father's Day on Sunday.  We are looking forward to a weekend of relaxation and celebrating Jeff for being a great dad!  Hope your weekend is great too!  Here are the things that made my week amazing!

1.  This Bell.

Because it's a vintage school bell and makes the most amazing sound when rung in the morning.  We homeschool, so it just seemed right to get a school bell to ring each day of class.  

2.  This Sign and This Shortcake.

Because where we live it's strawberry season right now.  From the first weekend in June to the middle of July, strawberries take front seat and are everywhere.  The sign is from Grandpa's Farm in Lebanon, Oregon, and the World's Largest Shortcake was during the Strawberry Parade in Lebanon, Oregon. (below:  menu sign at Burgerville in Albany, Oregon.)  Strawberries are everywhere!

3.  This Night Shot.

Because it's of the Strawberry Fair.  We went and rode some fun rides and had our annual corn dog and fresh squeezed lemonade that we always have each year.  It was a good time!

4.  This Homemade Jam.

Because each year we try to make up another batch of strawberry jelly from the ones we grow ourselves and also ones that we gather from local you-pick farms around the Willamette Valley.  It's freezer jam and here's my own recipe here!

5.  This Quote.
Because I found it on Pinterest and I found it fascinating.  Very interesting, right?
