Weekly Highlights: Strawberries and Playing at the Park 

Last week, Charity discovered wild strawberries in our backyard! She was so excited!

She has been picking them herself almost every day and enjoying them for a snack. I don’t think they are very sweet, but she thinks they are the best! 

We went to a park that we had never gone to before. It had the cutest little wooden buildings for small kids and cool swings and slides!

John making a silly face 😆

Micaiah had fun too, but he didn’t want to smile for pictures.

My big girl, Charity! I can’t believe she’s almost six!

I found more things at Goodwill to sell on eBay, as usual!

These sandals are Privo by Clarks.

And here’s my weekly recipe! We all probably have our own sloppy joe recipe, but here is the one we like to use! 

Manwich Copycat Recipe 



8 oz can tomato sauce

1 cup low sugar ketchup

1 tablespoon dried minced onion

1 tablespoon green pepper, diced fine

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/2 teaspoon chili powder


1 pound ground beef

6 hamburger buns


Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl.

Brown 1 pound ground beef, drain the fat. Add the sauce to the meat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with toasted hamburger buns.

Enjoy and have a great week!
