After Apple Picking

Three hours into juicing apples in our back yard -- and after lots of chatter from Aubrey about how much fun it is to pick your own free apples, how cool it is to operate the juicer, how great the juice tastes, and how maybe even sometime we could sell our juice -- she says, "This is probably the best thing that's ever happened to our family!!!"
Funny update 1: When I teased Aubrey about her comment, she changed it to "This is probably the best thing that's ever happened to our family -- in the back yard!

Yeah, that clears things up. So cute.

Update 2: I listened. I heard that she wanted to try to make some money. So we set up the juicer in the front yard on Tuesday after school, along with some signs and some mighty yelling, and the kids made $12 selling a cup of fresh squeezed apple juice for a buck apiece. And each cup was soooo tasty -- people were astounded.

Way to GO Aubrey! That's a pretty snazzy profit to add to the coffers. You are one go getter!
