My boys and I returned last night from a magical six days at our cabin. Once again, we traveled there with our dear friends, Anna and her two kids. It was the perfect way to wrap up summer before school starts on Monday.
Anna and I decided before we got there to establish a rhythm to our day which included a daily walk right after breakfast, and quiet reading time immediately following lunch. It was great to be in sync with this from the beginning as it made it easier for the children to slide into this routine.
We walked to "the point", the end of our property where the mouth of the river is, through the woods, through fields and along the dirt road. Each time we saw something new.
Found remnants in the woods of the farmer from whom we bought this property when I was a little girl.
With it being an extremely wet summer, there were fungus and mushrooms everywhere! (More on that later).
We gathered some treasures to bring to the preschool.
...where I peacefully enjoyed the flowers.
