September always makes me think of apples. Maybe because of the town I grew up in had an Apple Festival every year or maybe because of all the apple orchards around town that seemed to be the busiest this month. I really love September. It is also the start of a new school year. Nicholas started 1st grade. he has a great teacher and a few of the same friends he had in kindergarten. He really enjoys school and was looking forward to starting again. Jacob started his Pre K year in preschool. He does enjoy school but I wouldn't say as much as Nicholas. He says he can't wait to go on the bus with his big brother. Not too much longer:( Jacob had a field trip this month. We went to an apple orchard and picked apples. They also had an awesome playground they played on for awhile. Then on a Saturday we decided to go apple picking as a family (with the boys cousins) so we could make some applesauce. The boys had fun and Chad and I made a ton of applesauce. We really like eating homemade applesauce all year around.
