Blueberries and Battlefields
We went on our annual blueberry picking fieldtrip to Eagletree Farm. I like this place in particular because they do not spray the berries. They have a machine to scare of birds and use other techniques like that to keep pests away
.This year, E. joined us. It was his first time ever picking any kind of berry.
Balls Bluff Battlefield. And thus began our impromtu lesson on the Civil War. The park had an interpretive trail which we took.
We visited the cemetery. E's mom's one request was that if we talking about war that I emphasize the loss involved.
Out in the woods though, everything is a nature hike.
They found a fallen tree with a hole in the center that needed investigating to see who had made their home there.
