Yes, There was pie.

Two small pumpkins from our garden became pumpkin pie for our kindergarteners this week.  Most of the journey from seed to pie plate happened right outside their classroom door.   These students can tell you about this journey by what they’ve seen, what they’ve touched, what they’ve smelled, and yes what they have tasted.

IMAG1259 Though the pumpkins were pretty small, the impact they had on pie appreciation was pretty big.  Pie just tastes better when you’ve been waiting for it since August.
