A Thousand Word Thursday - A Trip to the Orchard

Max’s class got to take a field trip to an apple orchard on Wednesday.  I was asked to help and I said I could as long as they didn’t mind a few little people tagging along.  With JC on my back and Piper at my side (and a camera around my neck) I helped wrangle kindergarteners to the orchard.

We got to pick apples, make apple stamps, and go on a scavenger hunt. We read stories about apples then took the picked produce to the pail.  After a quick wash they were ground up and pressed to make fresh apple juice.  (Nevermind the bees we may have squished into the press, they were everywhere! Hope you’re not allergic!)
