Last week of "summer" before lessons

 I was going to start school the week of September 15th, but instead decided we needed a week of no structure after celebrating Avery's birthday weekend. So we went hiking with friends one day, tie dyed t-shirts on the back porch the next day, and made it down to the cranberry patch to pick cranberries and play with friends on the third day. Needless to say, I'm glad we made the most of the final days of summer... or fall.

The girls were picking low bush cranberries and smearing them on their cheeks and lips. Such an inherently girl thing to do.

 Some of the boys were trying to make a fire and none of us had thought to bring matches. Noah took a turn at the stick, without much success. I think we were missing some components.

One of our goals for the summer was to tie dye together, and we did it, just barely. A summer tradition in the making for sure.
