I made grape juice for the first time unassisted! :) It was fun, but extremely time consuming. I juiced 2 bushels of grapes and came out with 38 bottles of grape juice! It's really good, we had it for breakfast this morning.
With all of my leftover time, so for one session, I worked on this puzzle. I love puzzles and that's really my favorite conference past time - not making grape juice. I guess you do what you have to do, right?
The kids were actually not too bad this time for conference. We did have plenty of moments where they got "shushed", but for the most part it didn't get out of hand to the point where I was wondering why we watch it at all. It certainly helped that we still have naptime for 2 of them! Athena and Samantha were really good about finding quiet activities and listening. All the kids were quite interested in the grape juice making process and they took turns helping me wash the grapes. If I dared turn that whole job over to them I would because it's my LEAST favorite part, but I'm too picky about how the grapes get washed. Overall, I'd have to say it was a good and productive weekend!
