The nature of our Now is summed up in one word: full.
With time spent outdoors soaking up the remaining days of warm sun and warmish rains, before the season forces inside more of the time. And time spent fluffing up the nest (translation = insulating basement walls). And visits from Nana and Grandpa. And slow cooking. And, and, and.....
Homeschooling, while requiring regular planning and organizing has turned out to be the most wonderful experience. As long as I remember to not get too wrapped up in the process - which I am getting better at doing.
So, welcome autumn and the nature of our now.
