Bethany Goes Apple Picking?!

I want to tell you all a true, funny story about Bethany!

Most of the time Bethany is quite the serious young lady, but let me tell you, every once in a while she comes out with something downright hilarious!

Like the time she told us she went apple picking!!

One day, not too long ago, Malcolm, Bethany and I went out for a drive!

It was early autumn and we were hoping to see some color changes!

Shortly into our little road trip we came upon a sign for one of those u-pick your own apples places!

Thinking it might be a fun activity for Bethany,  we asked her if she wanted to  pick some apples.

The words that came out of her mouth next totally shocked us, because she told us that she had already gone apple picking with Connie, the wonderful woman that works with Bethany a few days a week!

Malcolm and I looked at each other with the same confused expression on our faces and were both thinking the same thing.

What the heck is she talking about?

Connie keeps a meticulous account of everywhere she and Bethany go together and as far as we knew, she had never taken Bethany apple picking.

I know it’s terrible, but I actually wondered if Bethany had just come up with her first lie to get out of physically exerting herself!

Needless to say, we did not go apple picking that day!!

So the next time Connie was scheduled to work with Bethany, we asked her if she had ever taken her apple picking.

When she said no, we were more confused than ever!

Why would Bethany tell us she had already gone apple picking with Connie?

None of us could figure it out!

Soon it was time for Connie and Bethany to go swimming at the YMCA.

When they came back home, Connie informed us that she had solved Bethany’s apple picking mystery!

Every time they go the the YMCA they pass a crab apple tree.

And every time Bethany walks by that crab apple tree she reaches up and picks one teeny, tiny, little apple!

Our mystery was solved!

Bethany had not learned to lie.

She was telling the truth!

She had gone apple picking with Connie already and she did not wish to expand her apple picking experience any further!
