Summer break is gone and school is here. What fun we’re going to have this year learning. I told the kids before we started that they’ve already passed everything, so let’s dig in and enjoy learning all we can. Before we officially hit the books we took a trip over the weekend to a place we love. We met my family and spent nearly all day at Maramec Spring Park this past Saturday. There were plenty of people picnicking, trout fishing, and taking pictures but there was still plenty of room to find space to ourselves. We did it all! Picnicked, walked a ton, fed fish, watched people fish, spotted a lizard, went over the bridge, drove the scenic sign tour, grilled, played football, played on 3 different playgrounds, walked around the spring at dusk and saw muskrats, watched a lady scoop up fish to put in the river for the next day, and to cap it all we went into town for ice cream before saying goodbye to my family and heading home.
