Happy Birthday, Johnny Appleseed.

Savannah's class went on a field trip to Rainbow Orchards, the first of three seasonal trips to this farm. I was fortunate enough to chaperon, spending the whole day with just my oldest. It was quite a treat. The children did outdoor education, meaning each subject was covered and related to the apple farm in a relevant, tangible way. The kids were so busy having fun, they hardly knew they were learning all the while.
The best part was the end, when we toured the barn and kitchen.
While eating their apple cider donuts and drinking their apple juice, Johnny Appleseed delighted them with his story. The students have been studying about him and so they had many questions.
