We canned peaches today. I was going to can in the morning with my friend but her little girl was sick. So I waited until Mobey got home from school and I'm really glad I did because she was so excited to help.

Sometimes I get busy and forget to include my children in activities such as this that could make good learning experiences and great memories.
Mobey loved to peel the peaches and watch the skin slide right off. That was my favorite part also.
The mess is still waiting for me in the kitchen, but I am happy to know I shared this with my daughter. When all was said and done, we had 25 bottles of peaches.

Wow, you're so domestic!! I wouldn't know where to begin if I had all those peaches =S And it's so good of you to teach Mobey these things!

I've been thinking about canning peaches. Now, I'm going to have to get advice from the expert.
