AFTERNOON LUNCH, GRANDMA INCLUDED - It is seriously wonderful that we get to and take the time to spend copious amounts of time with our family. Grandma has been working out of town and we have surely missed her, Maverick especially. Here, they are catching up during a Sunday BBQ.
Sunday morning is a wonderful time to celebrate life - and we cannot think of a better way - a breakfast of sour cream pancakes filled with dark chocolate chips, topped with blackberries, strawberries and bananas. Love it.
Tahoe - our beloved Chihuahua - serves as our official homeschool mascot. She tucks herself away in a quiet spot during work time and bolts to the rescue when she is needed. M&H love spending quiet, reflective moments with her, in between assignments. They especially like when she does something silly - like wrangling herself into a sweatshirt left on the classroom couch. :)
Papa Bear takes the kids to an old-school spot here in N. California, the Bagel Deli. A one man show, you have to get there early - we picked up a bag of day old chocolate bagels. Baked in the oven, the gooey gourmet chocolate center was perfect, with a touch of butter - YUM :)
Maverick + Haywood are just a couple of kids born with an extreme appreciation for outdoor adventure, whose parents started off just the way they did - with a wonderful view from a Kelty kidpack.
