I can't believe the end of school is near. This morning, T enjoyed his last day of working the carpool line at J's school while I took Ol to his end-of-the-year party at his school: he's done Wednesday, and Jack next Monday. Jack will be in FIRST GRADE this September. Say what?! When did that happen? Oh my...I'll deal with that later. In the meantime, I scurried home after the party to finish up the jam I started last night. Marisa's demo yesterday put me in a serious canning mood, so I chose a recipe from her cookbook and just put up nearly 4 pints of rhubarb, strawberry and orange jam. It's spiked with a little cinnamon and is absolutely lovely. I made five 1/4 pint jars for teacher gifts, kept some for us and have started stockpiling in anticipation of the Arts Market in which I'm participating in September. Wish I were better at photographing glass jars, but alas, I'm not.
