Bird's Nest

Thank Goodness, Summer is over.  It was a really challenging few months.  I am very glad school has started (Yes, we are still home schooling - that is an update for another time).

We spent yesterday afternoon building a fort, which looks more like a giant bird nest. Nevertheless, the boys spent hours playing in the woods and studying the fungi.

They are armed and ready to defend against intruders.

 When you home school ... this counts as science.

It has rained for about 8 days straight ... this is one of many fungi in the yard.

 As for our wonderful daughter ... this picture says it all.  She is still very much struggling and often stuck in a place of silent, yet screaming, rage - hence the HARD summer.  Ugh!!!
