We were able to collect 3 full 5-gallon buckets of apples off of our one apple tree this year!  Due to the Rim Fire, we were afforded some days off of school, so we took advantage of the time to learn how to can applesauce!  We made applesauce last year and then froze it, but we got quite a few more apples this year and figure if we can it, it will last longer and if we can bear to part with the deliciousness, we can actually share it as well.  So, here's to getting domestic!

1st Day of School 2013-2014

First day of school today went very well in the Miller household!
What a good looking bunch of kids!!!

(the pictures are somewhat muted in color because there is a big fire going on in our county right now and the morning air was terrible today.  I'm surprised you can't see the ash particles that were floating everywhere in the picture.  I don't want to edit the lighting in the photos because I want to reflect what was happening in the moment!  The kids couldn't even have 1st recess or play outside at preschool today because the air quality was so bad!)
