“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Apple Picking

This year we wasted no time in welcoming fall. Rowan would eat apples all day if she could, and since getting her to eat other fruits and veggies can be challenging, we like to support her apple habit. Saturday we took a beautiful drive over to our favorite apple orchard and picked for a bit. It's still early- they only had McIntosh apples ready, but we got a bunch and returned home up to our eyeballs in apples, ready to make applesauce, apple pie, apple crisp, etc. Also, given that baby Retta is just about ready to start eating baby food I am planning on making lots of applesauce for her and freezing it in ice cube trays so I have baby-sized portions of applesauce at the ready. Here are some of my favorite pictures of the day:
