Word Wednesday: Black Walnuts
We’ve yet to crack them open . . . the black walnuts.
I know from this video it is going to be a messy process. However, when the beloved Sunday school/Awana teachers mention anything, Mr. Smackdown instantly grabs hold of the idea.
We are homeschoolers. They want to learn, I shall teach.
I’d like to call a sub in for “opening” day, though.
I will be brave. I’m a little scared of what lurks inside these walnuts. Namely the black pigment . . . that can and will seek to dye my hands.
I will wear gloves. Perhaps three pairs thick.
I really thought the video would dissuade them. Nope. We ended up watching approximately five . . . and with each one they became even more enamored with the idea of harvesting our own walnuts.
They don’t even like walnuts.
Perhaps they will learn. There is something to be said about harvesting your own food.
Thanks, Pat and Al!
