I am truly blessed with a homeschool group that is willing to share their different resources. One of the dear ladies in our group lives on a property that has apple and pear trees. She invited us all this last Tuesday to her home to help with her apple harvest:-) With her generosity, we were blessed with a bountiful supply of apples...yummy!
Along with the apples, we had the great pleasure of fellowshipping with fellow homeschoolers. Fiona and Brenna knew pretty much all the other kids and I enjoyed chatting with many of the ladies from my group. It was fun watching the children run around on this large property having fun and exploring.
Fiona(although highly allergic) found an adorable kitten to play with and couldn't seem to keep from picking her up:-) Of course, by the end the afternoon, she was itchy and sneezy...but she sure loved getting to play with the kitten.As for me, I really had fun and I've already used some of the apples in my baking:-) Yesterday, I made a spur of the moment Apple-Coffee Cake....yummy! My hubby is looking forward to me making some Apple Butter...which I've never done, but there is a first time for everything and I have a recipe! I also plan on making an Apple Pie or two and maybe some Applesauce for Liam. I brought home quite a bunch:-0
In some ways, I'm sorry it is over...it was so much fun! But perhaps we will have the opportunity to do it again next year...who knows! If nothing else, I have a wonderful set of memories with my dear children that I will always remember and enjoy!
