picking time


We have got the best apricot tree in our back yard.

Jarom and Matt picking them all. Jarom was very into it and would call them beauties. And he kept saying "we hit the jackpot."

poor fella climbed the tree not knowing how to get down. Matt told him to jump and said he would catch him. He jumped without letting go, the bark ate him up. He is a brave kid though. We have been running our dehydrator for a week straight. The apricots make the best fruit leather. We are in heaven.

Did you make lots of dried apricots or fruit leather with your dehydrator? I just love fruit trees, what is better than fresh, free fruit from your own back yard, lucky!

My mom always did stuff like that! Needless to say with 5 kids, she never got any. I saw Jarom's picture about the spider above, and it totally reminded me of Seth! Seth as a kid was absolutely fascinated by spiders. He used to play with them and he had a book about spiders that never left his side! Never know, you may have a little scientist on your hands and in the works!
