After the kids were asleep Ryan and I sat up repeating various versions of I think this camper was the best decision we ever made! Then we daydreamed about our next big trip before watching an episode of "Detectorists" and falling asleep.  Happiness.

A Nora Date

2016-10-09_11-32-25

Nora (who is having a little trouble with mama being gone on occasion for my internship or a class) has learned that what she needs more of in her life are dates.  Recently she shared with the family that she had a date planned for her and I to go eat treats together.  Both Jackson and Grace looked at each other and said, wait, does she really just get to plan a date and have it happen?  Yes, apparently she does.  This one to French Meadow.

Farm School

Nora and I had our last day of farm school last week.  Oh how we love farm school.  Every week beginning the day after farm school Nora would to ask if tomorrow we have farm school.  We gave the animals extra hugs and snuggles last Tuesday and promised to return again in the spring.

{Also I back tracked our first field trip tonight}
