Watermelon ............. Yummy !!!

Watermelon is so Yummy !!!!

It's one of my favorite things in the summer , well all of ours. I can remember when I was young we always planted some in our garden.

Well Monday I went out and got the mail and we got the Smith's Ad. So later that nite I sat down and was going through the ad. Here they had a whole Seedless Watermelon for $ 3.49 a piece. Well the sale started today and after breakfast I got Carly ready and we headed to Smith's. I had just a couple other things I wanted to pick up. We don't live far from there so it was just a nice walk before it got HOT out. Ridge stayed with one of the neighbors , so it was just the girls and I.

We got a good size one and they had lots. I decided I would just get one for now to see how good it tasted. So after lunch we cut it and it was great. I had a sorta rough day yesterday w/ a neighbor girl. I decided we had enough watermelon for us after supper so I went ahead and cut a tray of it for the neighborhood kids. Ridge said Mom that's what I love about you !! Your so nice to everyone even if things are bad. I reminded him that we are to be like Jesus and that's what he would want. Yesterday a child called one of my daughter's a name and it hurt her but it hurt me to. I handled it best I could and Today is a brand new day and Jesus teaches us to forgive. I told Ridge we can't change yesterday but today is a new day and this is what counts.

Here is a couple pictures of Our Watermelon !!!

Have a great Wednesday !!!

Glad you found some yummy watermelon!! Kyndra hasn't really grown a taste for it. At least not yet. I'm not a big fan of it. You handled the name calling situation very well! Way to go!

"kill them with kindness" is what I always say when someone has been mean or hurtful in some way. so sorry about that girl calling your sweet one a name that hurt. You know she wouldn't like it if she had been called that name. I think you did a kind gesture by sharing the watermelon, definitely a teachable moment for your kids too!

and yum on the watermelon! I haven't had a seedless one but I do love watermelon!

I love watermelon! You are so sweet to turn the name calling incident into a lesson for your children. They will always remember that, too.

Sounds delicious. I have to get some this summer. It's always a mess cutting it up but very good to eat.
