Here are the kids climbing the tree to pick some fruit on a lazy Sunday afternoon last month:
She was a little nervous about picking one from the branch she was on. In the past she just reached up from solid ground to pick a plum.
I told her she'd be fine. She finally believed me.
There's the confidence. Go Wendy!
Jane picked me so many plums. I was grateful.
I love these next few shots of all of them.
They seriously loved being outdoors all summer and I loved that they could experience all the fresh food.
But oh the filthiness. Ha! They should have had baths every day but we settled on washing their feet before bed every night :) That's just too much work!
