In school Colton has been learning about Johnny Apple Seed. I can remember learning about him too! I was very puzzled how one man could go around the country planting apple trees. I wondered if his feet got sore and how he didn’t run out of seeds. And then I took it even further and wondered, as I saw the trees all around my town, if he had planted any of those. (I obviously didn’t know the difference between regular trees and apple trees.) Anyhoo, Colton was asked to bring one of three specific apples to school. We chose the Granny Smith Apples because I think they are so pretty. The class taste tested each apple to determine which was his favorite. Colton’s only apple request is expressed in this adorable drawing he brought home. Some letters may be missing, but I can get the gist of what he was trying to write. This is his first attempt at a sentence. I am so proud of him.
Here is a closer view…

He still struggles with the “th” sound, but it makes it all the cuter :)
