Mother’s Journal – Amazing Week!

Homeschool Mothers Journal Button

In my life this week….

I had all my boys home for a week! We packed it with lots of good times and memory making! We started off with a trip to Yosemite where the younger two boys climbed to the top of Half Dome!

Half Dome Hike October 2014

It makes my heart so happy to see these two challenging their limits together. They have been planning this hike for months, hoping they would get the opportunity to achieve their goal. They had to put their names in for the lottery to get the permit to hike the trail and the weather needed to cooperate. As you can see, it was a perfect day to complete this hike.

Half Dome Achieved

I love the angle of this image because it really gives you the perspective of just how high you are at the top of this granite top.

 

Yosemite October 2014

My favorite thing this week was…

I cherish the times we have all the boys to ourselves….catching up with their adventures and hearing their plans for the future. This photo was taken after their Half Dome hike at the Yosemite Lodge where we had dinner.

Crown and Anchor

A photo, video, or link to share…

We had a quick trip to Monterey during the week for a wedding. On that day, we took our middle son for his first official drink since turning 21….the Crown and Anchor is a really fun place to eat and we highly recommend it if you are ever in Monterey, California.

17 Mile Drive

Mr. A and I had a great day at the coast…Lone Cypress in the background (17 Mile Drive). His friend was getting married at the beach in Pacific Grove which was an almost perfect setting. It is hard to believe that their friends are already getting married and moving on to a different chapter in their lives.

For now, I am savoring the moments I can have my boys all to myself but part of me acknowledges that this will not last forever. They are all growing into amazing young men who make me so proud.
