Mountain Getaway

I was in the mountains this weekend. My heart is home with my babes, but my head is still kind of there. The moment I find myself away from suburban sprawl and surrounded by God's creation, it feels like my souls opens up and is filled.
I crave it. I want it. I need it.
It was a beautiful and much needed break. Clear air, birds chirping, lots of trees and 4 good friends to be with.
We talked. A lot.
We laughed. A lot.
I am so glad to be sharing this journey of home schooling with them.

Because I am sharing so many pictures of the weekend, I am keeping my commentary to the bare minimum.

being on this path with these friends.

It is hard to come back to cars and fences and endless sidewalk. It only strengthens my resolve to make it "into the wild" as often as possible.
Thank goodness I got a wilderness fix today at Riley Wilderness Park. Pictures to come.
