New Haircuts for Everyone!


IMG_7103Everyone got haircuts today … Annie’s hair is layered and straightened (she wants a new straightening iron now) … Molly got her pixie cut a little shorter … and Zoe got a short hair cut!  I should have measured how much hair got cut off, but it was about 6″.

Happy Birthday, Zoe!



Zoe wanted a rainbow unicorn cake.  My secret method is revealed on SmugMug

We celebrated by bringing our gluten free cake to the weekly homeschool indoor skate & play, and Zoe roller skated for the first time!

Apple Cider!


It was a REALLY rainy day.  Molly and Zoe slept on the way to Helen’s house:


Pretty leaves:


We joined Helen, Lee, Dave, Sally, and a few of their closest friends, including some kids and some dogs to juice a few apples:


The grinder was electric, but the presser was manual labor:


The pressed juice was strained:


The results were bottled at a rate of about half a gallon a minute.  There were lots and lots and lots of empty bottles:



This is what was left of the apples:

The kids mainly played while the apples were being pressed:


Fresh apple cider is the absolute best thing in the universe!  (ok, there might be better stuff out there, but this is pretty awesome!)

End of the day … my feet hurt, but I am very thankful for rain boots:
