A Day Spent Out of Doors

"Never be within doors when you can rightly be without." - Charlotte Mason

A few weekends ago we took this to heart and headed north.  It was still hot here in the Arizona desert, but fall was settling in the high country.  It was exactly the trip our family needed after a stressful summer.  Time to bond.  Time to be.  Time where the only worry was how to keep our hands clean when it was time to eat.

Bear is playing in an ash pit.  Instead of stopping him, I snapped a picture.  

I did eventually clean his face.

Look what we found!

My favorite picture of my bookends.  It shows me how fleeting these days are.

Guess who's taller than mom?!
Let the heavens rejoice, 
let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, 
and all that is in it.
Let the fields be jubilant,
and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
- Psalm 96:11-12
