Johnny Appleseed Day-Sept. 26th

Sorry this post didn't make it over the weekend. I had a FABULOUS time at the FSU vs. Colorado game in Jacksonville this past weekend. It was a good day to be a Nole! Our class had an awesome day eating apples and learning about Johnny Appleseed. Yes we share the same birthday but like your children came home to tell you I turned 29 on Friday-for the 8th year in a row :) Seriously we started the day with an apple tasting. Which apple tastes better-red, yellow, or green? A HUGE thank you to the cafeteria, they were gracious enough to donate an entire case of apples! The green apple won by 1 vote! They like the sour apples. Later in the afternoon we had another apple tasting but this time we sampled apple chips, dried apples, freeze dried apples, Apple Jacks, apple cider, apple juice, and apple pastry. The kids loved it! The BEST part of the day was the smell from the back of the room as we let apples, cinnamon, and sugar cook in the crock pot. It smelled so yummy people stopped into our room to take a whiff that leaked out into the hallway. They tasted as yummy as they smelled. We had a wonderful day and look forward to the next learning experience-maybe Johnny Broccoli day? :)
