Child's-eye view

The adjustment to homeschooling has been not too difficult, because it has been very much like a return to the way we lived before the public school experiment started.

As all the other kids get excited for new classrooms and bus routes and what-all, and I've heard some other mothers express relief their kids will be away during the day again soon, I'm finding I'm glad I get to keep them with me this fall.

Seeing the world through their eyes is one of the best parts.

One of the other best parts is that we don't have to stick to someone else's calendar.  Leaving this morning on another road trip, destination Northern British Columbia and DH's family ranch.  The kids have never been there.  I can't wait to see how they see it.

Next time: Actual stitching content!  And/or pictures of beautiful British Columbia, haha.

Scenes from a summer

So this is where we've been for the last little while.  Here:

Long Dog Samplers' "Do Bears" in the early morning.
25 Mile Creek campground on Lake Chelan.

And here...

Port Orchard foot ferry on a Sunday afternoon.

Can't forget when we tried this...

Trying out a spokeshave at Pioneer Farm Museum in Eatonville.

And we've been here a lot:

Cool forests behind our house.  Often.

But it still might be a little premature to do a summer-wrap up post, because summer isn't quite over yet.  Still a few weeks...let's go see what else we can find.

Catch ya on the flip side.
