Here's a post that was supposed to be posted long ago, but we are just now getting around to doing it... Farm Life can get busy! Just this past September we went to the annual Cider Squeeze held at Philip Foster Farm. It is an event we enjoy going to and do not want to miss out on! This year we all dressed up matching. Then men were in their Carhartts and the ladies in their tiered skirts. Which we made! We squeezed our own Apple Cider from apples which we picked from our apple trees. At the end of this post is a little movie we put together with little clips of the event so you all can get a glimpse of the festivities. Maybe we'll see you there next year! Enjoy the pictures!
Jordan was able to get a load of the apple pulp for our garden and chickens-

When there was a break in the action Tabitha, Eden, Melody, Bip, and I all took a tour through Philip Foster's cabin. We enjoyed taking some pictures of historical poses until we got caught up in a tour with a history buff who nearly had us believing he was the real Philip Foster... but then it does take awhile to fool a bunch of home schooled kids who do know their history. :)
Books: The Bible, "Indian Massacres", and "Gospel Hymns".
