It's never a lame idea to go for a mushroom walk. Hunting out these often elusive fungi. It's just like a treasure hunt. We are really enjoying all the new species we are finding this; our first autumn in Oregon. Continue reading

Carrie most of our days are like that too... it's just our nature as a family. It's just more relaxed and open that way and keeps me sane as a mother :D You should come and visit! There is so much to do and see!

Hello!! We are trying out village school this semester. Maybe it would interest you?? http://www.villagehome.org/ I will make sure that they still get together in the fall at Cook Park and I will let you know. If not we could just meet somewhere to play. I totally understand. It's really hard when the kids are lonely. We are so thrilled to be somewhere that has so many opportunities for homeschoolers. That just wasn't the case where we were before. hugs!

Thanks Kathryn! :) Would love to meet for coffee sometime... and I have heard that Ashland is beautiful and we plan to head that way someday. My SIL is going to be there this summer working on an organic farm. Looking forward to hearing all about it and maybe working there with the boys one summer when they are older. Have a wonderful summer!!
