Emily's field trip

Emily had a class trip to an olive grove(she's a pro now), and we saw how the men use special air powered fingers to pick the olives. Very cool, and Emily got to try one herself. Then we went to where they make the olive oil, and then to an Italian Elementary School for lunch! Great Day!

Olive picking & making olive oil

The Solley's took a bus trip out to the mountains, just north of Montesarchio. Stopped at a beautiful little pastry/cafe' on the way that was great. Picked olives, shared a awesome lunch with new friends, and family, it was dynamite! Beautiful day capped off with a gorgeous sunset!
