We were given a box of oranges last week. Delicious, juicy, and straight off a Florida tree. The children were hesitant at first. "Why do they have spots?", "They look dirty", "Oranges aren't supposed to have stems", etc. "Fine", I told them, "you don't have to eat any". Of course the minute I cut one open the smell changed their minds and they were grabbing for slices.
Our box is almost empty. I know the minute I have to start buying "Lil' Cuties" again they're going to realize just how much they've been missing. We may just have to plan a road trip to get some of our own Florida citrus soon. I hear the Grapefruit is even better.
