The kids weren’t quite ready to go back to school yesterday, but they had serious cabin fever. We had to drop by the schools to pick up their missed school work, and we stopped to take a brief walk on a local nature trail just to get outside for a little while.
Everyone thought it was a great idea to walk in the leaves and twigs until they actually started doing it. Apparently flip flops and sandals aren’t approved nature walk footwear. (I was wearing heeled flip flops and I didn’t have a problem. I think the girls were being a bit whiny because they weren’t all the way well yet.)
Here’s a photo of the three of them on one of the bridges. I made them hold hands. Alexis looks like I’m attempting to kill her by making her spend time with her brother and sister. “Ack! They’re touching me!”
By the end of our little trip, the only child who wasn’t throwing a fit was Brandon. We stopped really quickly on the way back to the van to snap this photo of him in some tall grass just because I thought it would be pretty. I mean manly. Yes, very manly.
I don’t have any scrapbook pages to share because my sick children have demanded all of my time and energy. Tomorrow’s not looking good either! I have to chaperone a field trip. It will be okay though. Field trips = photo opportunities.
