I present mid-March to early-April goodness . . . .
Kickapoo Teen Drop-In, hosted by the good folks from Echo Valley Farm. Having never led such a group, I was a wee bit nervous about how to approach it, but the teens were inspiring and ready to dive into the creative process.

sharing some downtime
caring for the chickens, ducks, and geese
and loads of time for good ol' playing around

The following five photos were taken by Sylvia. I'm on the other side of the lens for a change. :)

I used to blog in a much more timely way, in smaller snippets, but one thing I enjoy about these overarching catch-up posts is seeing a broader view of what our weeks and months entail. Our days are so varied and busy. Our learning is broad and active. Our lives are interwoven with education and fun and connection. I can't complain one bit. Well, not much, anyway. :) Some days I am plumb tired. It's a satisfying feeling nonetheless.
