Gramps and Grams would have loved yesterday!
Yesterday I got to do something I know my Gramps and Grams would have LOVED! Picking apples and then making cider! My dear friends and teammates, the Eiflings invited me to Iwona's family home in Skoczów, about an hour south of me. Her dad has an apple orchard and we got the pick apples and then make cider! He had us go to a friend’s house to use his handmade apple cider press! It was a GREAT experience and I got to use more and more of my Polish! While we were "pressing", Daniel and I talked about our grandparents and how much we know they would have LOVED to be here and join in the fun. It was a great experience that I hope to repeat next year! The cider is like drinking pure apples!
