Everyday, for school, Jared writes in a journal. Sometimes I’ll give him a prompt to get him started. Sometimes he’ll have something already in mind. We really enjoy a steaming cup of mulled apple cider around here, so the other day I asked him to write about apple cider using all five senses to describe it. After thinking about it a while and interviewing the family, here’s what he wrote:
The apple cider tastes like Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
It smells like pine trees, a wood fire, turkey, and food.
It feels like happiness, cheerfulness, God, and relaxing.
It looks like holiday spirit, twinkling lights, family, and the falling leaves.
It sounds like the church bells ringing, leaves crunching, people laughing, music playing, happiness, ice skaters, parties, and friends.
Apple cider is family, and it always will be.
Of course, I loved it. I’m sappy like that. Can you describe apple cider using all five senses? Feel free to share!
