This past weekend we took advantage of Lil’C’s day off from school and took a short Fall Break. We headed to the lake for our break because it is one of my favorite places to be this time of year. Friends came up for one of the nights and we spent our time with them exploring the local Science Center, hanging by the campfire, relaxing, kayaking and fishing. The kids, my mom and I celebrated Michealmas on Monday and visited the corn maze for our own quest. The weather was amazing and the kids and I really enjoyed the balance of friends, family and quiet. It was very hard to leave on Tuesday but a trip to the Country Store for candy sweetened the departure.
