This family activity was actually a whole lot of fun! Our church owns an orchid down here, and asks the members to volunteer to help with the work. So Friday night we helped with the thinning. I had no idea what in the world that meant... turns out it's real simple and a fun family activity. All we had to do was pull off enough small apricots so that some of the apricots can mature to the yummy fruit. Occasionally the kids would get bored cause we'd run out of low branches to thin, but other than that they worked hard and had fun. It was fun that every now and then we'd get into little apricot fights! I can't wait until it's time to pick the fruit... although, no one will be allowed to throw those!
