Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

We received a box of apples for the holidays. What is really cool about them is that they are antique apples. You may be saying ewwwww, but it is not what you think -- they are NOT more than 100 years old!

Antique apples are apples whose origins date back in time. There are approximately 14,000 known varieties of apples. About 7,000 of them come from Russia.

The apples we got came from Kilcherman's Christmas Cove Farm. It is one of the original antique apple farms in the United States.

So, last night we tasted our first apple: the woodpecker apple. It dates back to 1847 when it was discovered in Middlesex, Massachusetts. Why is it called the Woodpecker apple? Well, because woodpeckers liked the tree and ate the apples! The apple was beautiful! It was also delicious. Our review is: probably good for pies, a bit tart, a bit mealy, wonderfully fresh, and good for dessert!
