a morning walk
First, though, we had to head down the driveway to our new mailbox and mail off some letters to a very special person.
It felt great to get out into the woods. The boys have been out every day for hours but I must confess I have not. I have been so preoccupied with the unpacking and organizing. My body needed to get out. So we did.
It will be something we are hoping to do EVERY morning. I made a priority list for our home school and being in nature was at the top. I watched as they sent sticks down the stream. We discussed why sometimes the sticks got stuck- currents and such. They are learning to appreciate nature.
When the wind blew and the leaves fell, Landon said "Isn't it just beautiful , Mama?"
I replied, it was, and even more beautiful because I get to experience it with them.
We are slowly getting into a new rhythm, and it's a good one.
