Apple Cider

Today we attended a field trip for Gwen's preschool where we pressed apples to make cider.  What a wonderful way for the children to experience community, and take pride in their work.  The children participated in each step from picking the apples off the trees, cutting the apples, pressing them and then the glorious satisfaction of drinking the cider they had made as a community. 

I think these pictures will speak for themselves. 
(You can have fun picturing me taking these photos with Luke in the front pack...)

Tomorrow we are participating in the Step Up for Down syndrome walk in La Crosse, Wisconsin.  We are so proud to be a part of this community and can't wait to show our support tomorrow!  If you happen to be in the La Crosse area, please consider joining us. 

Registration begins at 10:00 am with the walk beginning at 11:00 am.

Also - thank you so much to those of you who have donated to Luke's Team.  I am not very comfortable asking for donations, so this was a bit out of my comfort zone.  COTH was responsible for the wonderful resources we were sent home with after Luke's birth. We do not pay dues to be a part of this organization and Luke is able to participate in music therapy free of charge.  Above all, COTH is giving Luke and our family a support system that is invaluable.  So, thank you for loving Luke and supporting this wonderful organization.  We are truly grateful for our community of love and support.
