Asheville Halloween

For the past several years, we have spent  Halloween at ARGH ( a gathering of unschooling families) which has been held at cabins in the mountains of Tennessee. Due to some changes in dates and location, this year it fell on the week after Halloween.  So, we decided have a party!

I have always loved Halloween and when the kids were young, I made most of their costumes and our whole family often dressed up.   For this party, it seemed more of the adults dressed up in costume than the younger crowd.  I'm so grateful for friends and family whether in costume or not and so happy for those who could make it to the party.  Here are a few of the photos ~

Hope your Halloween is filled with Fun and Shenanigans and that you are safely in the center of any storm.
I'm thankful for this lovely place I live. This path leads from my house around the lake right by a bird sanctuary and the library.  The leave are in their full fall glory and as usual I took photos which don't begin to do them justice.

 Midway through my walk, I stopped at the library and early voted just like my neighborhood sign recommends.  I voted like my Lady Parts Matter.  Because they do.

Thankful Month

One month from today till Thanksgiving so I'm bringing a few "Thankful Posts" to the blog.

I've had the luxury of some down time after Broc and I were presenters at  the Florida Unschooling Conference, Un In The Sun, a couple of weeks ago.  It was lovely seeing old friends and especially meeting so many families with young children who were unschooling and learning  how to be better peaceful parents to their kids.  I've spent a lot of time since then just being alone and reflecting about my journey through parenting and especially about the love and support I've known every day since Broc came into my life.

Broc loves me and tells me so every single day. He even seems to love all the parts of me that are a bit crazy. I'm not sure what I ever did to deserve someone as sweet and loving and generous and funny as he is.  I wish I could say that I don't ever take him for granted but I do.  He just keeps on loving and caring and making me laugh and for that…
