Appleseed

To prelude this post you must know that last week at school Kade learned all about Johnny Appleseed.



This afternoon Kade wanted an apple for part of his snack.  There were a few weird looking spots on it so he asked to have the peel removed.  I complied.  When I handed it back to him he asked if I took out the seeds.  I told him no.  Then I explained I would have had to cut the apple open since they're on the inside.  He was good with that.  He went on to devour the apple.  A few minutes later he announced a discovery, an apple seed.  He ended up with four in the end.

Then he told me he was going to plant them in the yard so we could have our own apple trees.  (That would be nice.)  I asked where he was going to do this.  "Oh, by the other trees," he said.  I told him it takes a long time for a tree to grow and that it might not grow at all.  He thought about it for a while and then told me he was just going to throw them outside and see what happened.  And that's exactly what he did.



I suppose we now have our very own Johnny Appleseed.
