Balloon Glow

We rode our bikes up to Central Field and had a picnic. It was a beautiful evening and we were joined by a little neighbor and friend. It was a bit frightful riding home in the dark. I would like to do it more often.

Rocky Falls lichens, moss, and more

Rocky Falls is in the National Scenic Riverway and is a secret little nook of a place. We had a fabulous time exploring, catching small animals, and sliding down the water falls. The Ozark Trail winds through this area.
The rocky glade surrounding the falls has many types of mosses, lichens, and rocks. If i were an animal i would probably live here. i love moss.

Ozark Camp

We spent Labor Day camping with family on the Jacks Fork River. We had such fun. It is always hard to get back into the city groove again. But it makes the whole adventure that much more exciting!

Spanish Fiesta!

We celebrated the beginning of another school year with our friends in Spanish class. We had a hand-made pinata, delicious Cuban meat and guava pastries, and fun.
