We're well into harvest season here in farm country. Even though we're not a farming family, I love seeing the progress as all the fields around here get harvested. We have a friend who lives next to an apple orchard, so we're lucky enough to get to go pick as many apple as we want after the harvesters have gone through.
A friend and I took the kids out last week to pick some.
They had a blast! (Notice her pockets are full of those crab apples...I think the crab apple trees scattered throughout help with pollination. I really should ask sometime.)
Now that I'm finished scoring SATs, I need to get serious about drying, freezing, and canning apples in their various forms.
Then we'll probably go back for a second round of apple picking.
Between finalizing details on the building of our house (just signed paper work last night!), scoring SAT (done!), and coaching soccer (done!), I haven't had the energy to do as many apple crafts and collect as many apple books this year...maybe we still will...
I thought I'd share some of our favorite apple crafts and activities from last year, and hopefully I'll have some new ones to share soon.
