Passing On - Hard Work and Values Through Apricots

FullSizeRender 127.jpg

🍊A kind neighbor shared their bounty with us. We love apricots! 
We had so many we had to do something with them. This year we decided to give dehydrating them a shot. I involved the whole family. I’m so hoping they will thank me someday because heaven knows they don’t now. 
Even though I would not have said, that sitting in my Grandmothers kitchen snapping beans and shelling peas, was fun for me as a young girl, I would say, that I have fond memories of doing it. It taught me the value of hard work and planted wholesome seeds of the importance of growing and storing our own food. 
So hoping my boys get a shred of something like that! Do you make your kiddos help with projects like this in the kitchen?
