My 5 year old was eating an apple and came to me with a seed, “Let’s plant this and grow an apple tree”, she said. “We don’t have a yard big enough but one day we will”, was my reply. “Well, I will keep it until then”… and off she went. She soon returned with a container and the seed inside and here’s the cool bit, “I have washed it to clean it and keep it fresh because… I want to grow clean, fresh apples!”


I love the innocence of children, don’t you?
