Golden Field Trips.
This photo is a snap by one of my kiddos. Last week I went on my first field trip as a teacher instead of as a student. The neat thing about our school is that the whole grade goes on the field trip together. So that meant we took about one hundred 2nd graders on a hike on Humphrey's. It was an adventure to say the least. They did great and LOVED it! I haven't seen kids be that purely kids for a while. It sure beat sitting in a classroom all day!!!
Golden Caramel Sauce.
This stuff is sooooo good. You can dip apples in it or drizzle it over ice cream, but really all you need is a SPOON! Its that good. I promise. We finished a 12oz jar in 3 days. [recipe coming soon]
A Golden Hike [with a dusting of snow].
With Golden Hearted people.
[These are my sweet grandparents who visited last weekend from Alaska. They taught me the art of adventuring.]
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
Golden aspen leaves fall to the ground, the golden light disappears as the moon rises, sweet golden jars of caramel become empty with a spoon... autumn is a beautiful golden season but "nothing gold can stay". So enjoy the golden days while they are still here... at least until next year...
p.s. Photos from the snow dusted hike were mostly taken by my dear sister Kendal. Check out hers and her roommates' fashion blog.
