Apple Picking

We seriously are in love with living in the mountains. We’ve been here for a year now. The kids have noticed the trend in our family that we move a lot. They have been nervous that we are going to move again sometime soon. They were relieved when we signed our lease to stay in this house for another year. We had a talk the other day that it’s ok to want something. It’s okay to like where we live and want to stay here. But we always need to remember that what God wants for us is the more important thing and if we move again, it will be because he has something even better for us (Elijah suggested Hawaii).

We also told them to not worry about the future, but to enjoy our time here, however long it may be.

So.. on Saturday, we headed over to Sky Top Orchard for some apple picking. It was so fun! We were the first people there. For about half an hour, we were the only people there.

All four of the kids in a wagon. I’ve given up hope of having them all look at the camera at the same time!

Look at those growing kids! Brian and I were talking about how we hope these kinds of days are great memories that the kids take with them as they grow older. We hope that even when they are teenagers, they will still want to come out and apple pick with the family. One can hope… right?
