We made apricot jam yesterday. Brayden and Tawny both helped the entire time. They cleaned, pitted and cut the apricots for 47 quarts of jam! They didn't even mention being tired until about 5 hours in. They had fun and were willing to help out, and I really appreciated it. Ethan even "helped" (he splashed water out of the sink and through apricots everywhere) Greg came home halfway through and took over the stove for me. I don't think I could have done it without them. I'm pretty sure I would have quit way earlier if I hadn't had so much help. It was a tiring but very enjoyable day.
