How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World~ {FIAR}

Our FIAR book has been a repeat but the kids loved it anyway.
As we read we mapped the trip around the world on maps
and the most interesting page on this read was the rainforest where cinnamon is harvested 
so we found a video to watch and sprinkled some by our map of Sri Lanka!!!!

On Wednesday we took our traditional trip to the mountains for apples and a pumpkin~
 Our first stop was Bryson's Apple Orchard and we picked a lot of apples~
{ate some along the way as well!}
 Everyone filled their buckets so heavily we had to load them into the wagon~
 It was cool this year being able to read tags that labeled the kinds of apples growing~
 We headed back to pay for our apples and fried apple pies~
 Such a fun stop on our day of fun~
 Heading farther up the mountain we found lots of beauty to thank God for...
Magestic mountains and wonderful waterfalls~
 Last stop was Highlands, NC where we chose our perfect pumpkin and named him Freddie~
We had dinner and headed home tired, happy, and Fall filled!!!
Thanks dad for making this family tradition a reality!
Schooling on the road is the best.

The next morning we thought over our trip and everyone chose their favorite memory~
 I printed photos and they wrote about their favorite memory in their journals~

For Cook-a-Book we made an apple pie in our iron skillet~
Peel and slice apples thinly then sprinkle with 1/2 c sugar and 1 T cinnamon.
Add to a greased iron skillet.
In separate bowl mix 1c sugar, 1c self rising flour, 1 c milk, and stick of butter.
Mix well and pour over apples.
Bake @ 350 for 35-45 min until golden brown.

A wonderful week of rowing and look forward to next week!!!
