Beautiful Busy Fall Saturday

Another busy soccer Saturday morning.  It was sunny and crisp this morning for the girls soccer games.  By noon it was warmer and we were able to take off our sweatshirts and feel the warmth of the sun.  After soccer we made a quick stop at home to drop them off and then Emily and I were off on a Brownie adventure to Five Rivers.  The girls loved exploring in the education center and then outside for a nature hike.  They were working on part of their WOW Journey Book and learning about the water cycle.  Emily found a teeny tiny snail.  While the girls were busy Listening, learning and searching for water bugs and animals, I was seeing things through by own eyes.  Keeping my eyes open to what was naturally there, reflections in a swamp, my shadow on the creek and the colors of fall.




After a beautiful day enjoying nature we ran home to change and pick up the rest of the family, to go out for a celebration dinner in honor of my parents 40th wedding anniversary.  My sister said a beautiful toast that I ended and now I wish I had written down.
