A week away, breathing and swimming in the mountain air, with our a 500-square-foot rustic cabin to hide in from the hail equals some pretty zen kids and parents.
We went outside every day! For hours. Please witness my glory – for I have suffered in its creation.
The “school” portion of our learning year is over, but the photo taking never ends! This week we had a visit from the grandparents, plus lots of butterfly-watching time as they hatched (all but one, sadly). Plus, park days are back!
Fun week of new experiences: trying out archery with a new 4H group in person, geocaching on bicycles in our neighborhood, a self-imposed sibling Chopped Challenge, speed burning with Wilder’s handcarved fire sticks, and spore printing mushrooms that grew in our front yard to try and identify them.
And the “official” school year is over for us, and with it the end of my weekly tracking posts. I do this each week throughout the year, just for myself. These posts will see you next fall! Adios!
One week down…. Off we go, marching into the weekend at half pace, after a full week of go-go-go. I, for one, am tired. Full week, good week. May there be another.
Deep breath in… We’re hitting the end of our “school year,” or at least the part where I report it officially. We’re clearly ready to be outside nonstop, away from books and the table. Deep breath out… Two more weeks.
Please, please, please bring me more spring weather! I’m in love with the green and verdant things, and all of the birdsong.
