An Apple A Day

Before September gets up and leaves town, I better catch up on some blogging. Earlier in the month, we spontaneously planned a field trip out to the orchard with friends. If September = Apples, then we got it right this time. We had apples for days.

Literally.

Emmie and Madeline (and her brother and sister) bounded for the apple trees with joy. Before we knew it, our baskets were getting full and heavy in the wheelbarrow. Of course, little Lucy was in it, too. It was a 3-kid job to push forward!

After a few steps, it was time to stop for some pictures. I just love these kids. They are the cutest.

Naomi and I have known each other for several years, but this year we get to see each other nearly everyday because our schedules are so similar. I’m super excited about that!

Before we checked out at the store and paid an estimated million dollars for our apples, we stopped by to say hello to the farm animals.

Then we were on our way. Just a quick field trip, but we made the most of our “apple month” and made it a homeschooling unit by getting some books at the library and making some apple pie. It made for a delicious September!

One thought on “An Apple A Day

  1. Thanks for including us in your field trip! I’m regretting that we missed the apple pie part. We actually ate all of our apples. I wasn’t sure we would be able to make it through them all.
