Teddy Bear Picnic

Today Emma finished her bear unit in first grade with the annual Teddy Bear picnic. All of the first graders sang songs, recited poems, and went on an imaginary bear hunt. Joe. Chris, and I met Emma at school, watched her perform and enjoyed a picnic lunch together.

Apple picking

Today was the perfect day for apple picking. We visited a local family-owned orchard and picked a big bag of Macintosh apples. It was a great morning with the exception of Emma being attacked by an angry ant.
