The girls and I had a great time maple sugaring over the weekend. We took a walk through the woods, learned how to tap the tree, saw the sap drain into buckets, and watched it boil and turn into maple sugar! On the walk J and K found what they claim to be the perfect sticks! It's funny how you can plan an educational field trip, only to get there and realize that your kids would have been just as happy picking up sticks in our own backyard. I think next year we will try to identify some maple trees in our yard and see if we can tap them ourselves.
