Wow! We have a new appreciation for that tasty topping now that Hannah's mom came and taught us all about how to tap trees and use the sap to make maple syrup! We learned how to identify a maple tree, how and when to tap it, the way the sap comes out and is collected into buckets and that you have to boil the sap to make maple syrup! She read a great story and showed us lots of pictures. She even let us pretend to be maple trees to show how long it takes to collect sap! Don't be surprised if we start searching our yards for maple trees! Thanks, Mrs. Taiclet!
