The coastline of Bougainville from above as I fly in for my second stint of adventure. I checked in and booked my seats online and was stoked to get the first row... and as I board it turns out there are only 4 other passengers! Welcome to Bougainville. Again. @kathmandugear #wildthoughts#adventuretime#outdoorfun
We went Apple 🍎 picking, in the rain 🌧 and then went to warm up with friends 👫 and warm apple cider ☕️. I'm not sure it gets any more fall 🍁🍂🌾 than that!! Happy Fall Y'all!! [And no I didn't tell Efren to pose like that... that is just so him➡️]
What a way to end my work week! Out walking in our back woods and the owls are calling back and forth. I was lucky to actually spot one! It was super cool to listen to their back and forth. In one clip I caught one screeching. The last little clip is its departure through the trees! #stopandlisten#getoutsideandplay#inspiredbynature_#whatawonderfulworld

I am going to start trying to post our homeschool/unschool activities on Fridays. Things that may not be picture worthy on their own but sum up our week. Or talk about the things that don't make the pictures too! Like the excitement this week for Minecraft 1.2! We have been waiting for months for this update on iOS which has parrots!
This week (and a bit of last) has seen our Halloween prep start creeping in. We made golden steampunk masks which may or may not be the boy's costume. He made fake blood one day and set up a horror scene in the kitchen for me (#lifewithboys ). We also made cloud dough one day, and got back to our regular weekly swim at the pool after taking the summer off. Our letters came from @letters.from.afar
to much excitemeny. We discussed A Morocco and the boy is looking forward to the a next one.
We played with many friends and went to gymnastics. Having some issues at gym with kids not getting along which always stresses the boy out. Working on discussing how to handle it so he can keep going to his favourite homeschool group. Today we had outdoor OT which he also loves. Is like his own specialized PE class outside. We also did several dog walks and shopoing trips which are mine and his favourite activities respectably.
Every step is an adventure, my friends ☀️❤️ Race check-in is in an hour! The G2G team will go through each participant's kit to ensure we all have the mandatory gear and food needed to complete 273km self-supported in 6 stages over 7 days. Here we go!!! It's getting real now.
Thanks to @goi2p @rayzahab @richardsonleanne @theradicaledge @sequoia.fredericton @yankysports and all the friends friends who have helped me with figuring out what to pack and getting everything together! •
