The Mango Seed

I LOVE mangos...... LOVE!!!

I know it stems from my summer in Taiwan while in college. It was an amazing summer working with a church, a youth group and a women's ministry. I learned so much... in fact, it was during that summer that I felt sooo strongly that I needed to attend seminary to learn more about the Bible to teach others.

Being immersed into the culture (at least during the day) was awesome!! And I definitely developed my taste for mangos.... fresh perfectly ripened mangos:) unfortunately, nothing I've eaten in the US comes close.... but it's too tempting not to TRY:)

This week Nate and I busting into a mango... and Nate got to chew on the seed;) Great for a teether;)

1st Taste
Not quite sure what to think...
Going after it;)

He did a great job with it!!

Funniest thing though was that the seed is really slippery and Nate kept loosing it by holding it too tight. I 'd see him looking for it....

wasn't in his bib?
wasn't next to him in the seat.... on the left or right?
wasn't on the floor?

Found it behind him... must have went right over his shoulder :)

I grew up eating mangos!!! I really like them. Sometimes here in the States they are a little too expensive though!!!
We get them in Guatemala for $0.05!!! can't be that ah?

Ooh, yum! Now you've given me a new craving! I'll have to go get some mangos! :)
I remember giving a mango seed to Harrison around Nate's age. So much fun to watch them taste new things!
