Apples are one of my family’s favourite fruits. My daughters particularly enjoy picking apples from the trees in the community orchard in the Autumn time (as you can see in the photo). But they have been wondering whether they could grow their own apples at home and, if so, what would they need?
Chicken pox has been doing the rounds at my 3-year-old’s kindergarten over the past few weeks. It’s a common illness and many people get it when they are children. My 3-year-old caught it from her best friend and wasn’t very pleased about it. She felt very poorly for a few days and didn’t like her itchy spots. She looked at me with a sad face and asked, where do chicken pox come from?
