    I love to see the shots with the big kids helping out your little ones. I am #7 of 8 kids and don’t even remember my oldest siblings living at home. I think sweet thoughts that it must have been like your family.

    I took the kids apple picking. $1/lb!!! I’m from Washington (state), I’m still not used to that. I used to get all I wanted for free every fall, and 33/cents/lb if I bought them. I let them pick 5 apples each, and paid $4 for their lot. (yeah I was feeling cheap that day.) Then I saw they were selling different grades of apples- including “deer apples”, apples that are too small, or a little bruised, that are considered only good for deer & other animals. I bought $4 worth of those, and it was enough to have plenty to eat plain (DELICIOUS), and make 8 qts + 1 pint of applesauce. I’m going back tomorrow & do it all over again, and again, and again…..they said they would have those apples until the Holidays. Yay for canning!

    I’m so jealous. Texas is still suffering from the hot/cold syndrome. You know…high is 66 today/90 tomorrow. I wouldn’t even know where to find an orchard here. Your pictures make me want to make a geographical relocation.

    Apple picking is a hallmark of fall here in new england- I love it!
