Today is applesauce day. I have been not so patiently waiting for my apples to ripen, so that I can get applesauce made. Of course the apples are on their own timeline, and my hopes that they would be ready before I started school was wishful thinking. After starting on the applesauce and seeing how many apples are left on the tree, I should rename this post day 1 for applesauce. Oh boy. The kids know this routine, and as soon as we started, Lily wanted her apron on. Nate just wants to turn the handle on the squeezo (manly work). They both are excited to take applesauce to their teachers this week. I love the accomplishment of getting all the applesauce done, but it's a lot of sticky work. I really should be doing homework right now, but the timer for the canner just went off, so more yummy applesauce wins today.
