Transitioning from Summer to Winter

It doesn’t look the same around here any more. Today the temperatures are in the 60’s again, but things have changed.

No Sunday bike rides, but Sunday walks

We keep finding new places to explore

Color; oh yeah

On Friday we took another all-school outing. This time we walked up river. The kids (and staff) had a great time looking for agates, finding ladybugs, and throwing rocks and sticks in the river. A little fox must have wondered what was going on and came down to the beach to check us out. It was only about 3 feet from us, then ran back to the brush and after we’d passed by went to the river for a drink. On the walk, Margie showed us where the village cemetery was located on the bluff, so today we walked up there.

It was a beautiful, peaceful spot overlooking the river.
