We celebrated the last day of summer vacation, and a beautiful day at that, with some big muscle activity – a hike down Quechee Gorge. It was supposed to be a Valley Quest, but we are very familiar with the path and yet still couldn’t find the treasure box at the end. Oh well. We had a great time anyway!
After the hike we headed over to the farm to pick up our CSA share for this week. The kids ran around for awhile then announced that they were “boiling hot!” We grabbed some frozen yogurt from the CSA and brought it home for lunch. After a nice quiet time, including a scary chapter from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkabahn, we spent the afternoon playing with our neighbor. It was peaceful and nice. The kids ended up in bed late because we had to pick Alan up from work, but so far they are both excited for school tomorrow. Hopefully they keep that excitement in the morning!
