apples aplenty...apples galore

Every autumn our local schools hold a fundraiser for their music programs, by ordering and selling potatoes and apples. Even though we are a homeschooling family, it does not mean that we do not support public education (especially when it comes to the arts). This time around we ordered russets and honey crisps (50 pounds of each).

Well, you can guess what kind of a tone it has set having that many apples around our home. A new favorite book has emerged from all things apple as well. "The Apple Doll" by Elisa Kleven. We highly recommend this read, but please be warned that you will need to have some apples on hand for munching and for making your own apple dolls.

These are so sweet! I'll have to give that book a try. And I wish our school sold apples! We only get hit up for chocolates and frozen cookie dough!
