Mother’s Journal – June Edition

Homeschool Mothers Journal Button

It was a fantastic month for this mom….lots of family time and outdoor adventures together. We started off with a trip to Oregon camping with my oldest son. I love this time of year at the coast and the many beautiful wildflowers to be found there.

Lupine and Daisies

 

Now that the kids are older I cherish the time we have together. They still want to spend time with their mom and dad which makes us very happy. We talk, hike, and play board games, all the while enjoying each others company.

Tolowa Dunes State Park

My daughter was home for ten days this month!!! I told her every day was filled with joy when she was here. We had some wonderful adventures together!

Cascade Falls 1

Amanda had a list of things she wanted to do while she was in California and a trip to Lake Tahoe was high on the list. We ended up hiking to Cascade Falls on a hot afternoon, soaking our feet in the super cold water before we hiked back down the mountain. There is nothing better to wash the cares of the world away than a crystal clear waterfall crashing around you.

Cascade Falls 2

Mom and daughter…so easy to spend time with this girl. We both are hiking girls.

Vernal Falls

Another place on her list was Yosemite National Park….so here we are at the top of Vernal Falls! It was another hot day but no getting into this waterfall. We had to wait until we hiked back down to the Merced River before we got wet and cooled off. This was a day trip but we packed in the fun and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

 

Anmerican River

One afternoon we spent at the local river with the Kona dog. No trip to California would be complete without a day at the river….it is one of our favorite family spots. I love having places that mean so much to our kids, places they want to share with their friends too.

I think you can all understand why it was a good month. I love having my children around me, makes me more complete. Our next really big month together is this coming October when my husband and I will be going out to New York to see my daughter and other two sons. Lots of big plans!

I almost forgot! I also had the chance to meet my new little grand nephew this week! He is just a little doll…look at all that hair!

Bliss!
