It's been so rainy/overcast/rainy/overcast lately that we've been inside a great deal. While I've gotten a bunch of organizing and planning done, we haven't been in nature for a long time. This morning I loaded the kids and pup up for a little hike on an unmarked trail fairly close to the house. The trip started off splendidly-- everyone was super excited to be in the woods. Alex worked on some photography, Kolachi reveled in the smells and sounds of nature, and Justin ran full-steam ahead being "an explorer".
