Autumn Expedition

The other day, Andrea and I were fortunate to get to take Classes IV and pre-K on a walk to the local village Bagar. Their excitement as we departed was explosive, and it was awesome to hear their stories, watch them exalt in the new point of view, and follow their lead as they showed us how to gather the local fall fruit and fallen walnuts.

    What a great thing for the kids to do.
    I had forgotten just how beautiful the surrounding areas are.
