Happy Friday! What a busy yet happy time of year this is. It’s time for us to finish up the semester, prepare for the holidays and our trip to Brazil, wrap up the soccer season (tournament and party this weekend), and attend fund-raising events at our kids’ sweet school. The main event is this weekend’s Winter Faire, a Waldorf tradition of craft stations, vendors of handmade items, and, most important, the Illuminations store where children shop for their families with NO adults allowed.
Tomorrow we have a date night, and it’s been fun to choose what the heck we’re going to do! The fall colors here are stunning right now, so it’s just a pleasure to be outside in the sun and see the leaves. I hope you are enjoying these last days of fall, and as always, some links for your weekend reading:
