Week-end: links & life {vol. 51}

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Last weekend, Kathryn and I explored the cutest little town, with the most fantastic old trees. I don’t know how to explain how delightful I found it all, except that it felt like I’d wandered into a really good book. I don’t know if I’ll ever write more than just a blog, but I feel as though the likelihood increased by 3000% simply by living here.

This week: puzzles and reading and walks and bike rides!

We’re still getting settled, but I’ve finally unpacked and organized our books so homeschooling can resume next week. Kathryn already started back to working on math and science, and will add in more next week; because of scheduling and holidays, however, we’ve decided to wait on her starting Latin until after the first of the year.

Linking up today with my friends Kris and Mary.
