Weekend reading: October 10, 2015

My people. <3

From Instagram: My people.

Yesterday Sean had to delay an outdoor painting job because of the rain, so we all played hooky and headed to Blackwater Falls, one of our very favorite fall destinations! Unfortunately, we missed the peak foliage down at the falls (although we did drive through some spectacular areas!), but it was still a really fun trip, made even better by Jackson’s excitement for the whole thing—the waterfalls themselves, racing up and down the steps, finding sticks and climbing on rocks just like his big sisters—and the best pizza we’ve ever had at a tiny hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant in Davis, WV.

Although we don’t usually worry about making up homeschool days when we do something like that, I’m keenly aware that we’ll have a brand new baby within 2-3 weeks, so I’m reserving my homeschool-lite days for after Lucas arrives. That means today will be a regular work and school day for us even though it’s Saturday (which some of my kids are more agreeable about than others!).
