Wildling sensory science, lots of home experiments + builds, then a fairy house project that turned out amazing – three beautiful houses in our front garden bed!
Long before we had kids, George and I always found somewhere to BE in the mountains this time of year. It’s just rejuvenating to meander outside as the seasons shift. Now we pretend this fall tradition is “for Wilder’s birthday.”
We spent the week stacking new habits onto old ones, aiming for a little bit more structure each week until we ramp up to our full fall schedule.
When we have a fun, outdoorsy week like this one, I’m so thankful our summers don’t end with butts in desks.
Week “at home,” yet we’re hardly there with all the outdoor time, the friend time, and the adventures. Hooray!
I don’t know if it’s simply reactive, a post-Covid leaving of the space we were forced to inhabit for a year, but we’ve been far busier than expected this particular year.
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.
Highlights this week: Road trip to Colby, KS, playground weather, hiking with friends on repeat, + caring for our dentally-challenged cat.
