Fall means Apple harvest:
Apple chips! Some with cinnamon, some without (for River who doesn’t like spices). —Caramel Apple Jam—
My first eggplant ever! First ever batch of raspberries big enough to make a fruit salad! My crop of carrots! I grew both orange and purple.
Thomas pulled this monster carrot! Speaking of monster carrots…check out my collection of odd-balls. Seriously sweet carrots! I’m going to use a bunch in recipes and then blanch and freeze the rest. This boy stole and ate 4 tomatoes when I picked them this time.Biggest cucumber!
First project for the week of the first of Fall was this tree painting idea. Using hands/arms and fingerprints for trees and leaves. They did an awesome job!
They expanded the project on their own to make masking tape skeletons (second picture)! My kids are so creative!
Other fun crafty things we’ve done:
This is a Pinterest project Thomas and I did together that I never posted. It is a bunch of plane magnets. Thomas painted all the components and I pieced them together with glue gun. They turned out soooo awesome! Great for holding papers on the fridge (and entertaining little brothers).
Fall cleaning is in full swing! Kitchen/dining room down…only what, 10, rooms to go? Ugh… 😉
