My children have been on spring break for the past week. Today is their last day, so tomorrow we will all be back to our routine. I am substituting for one of the recess attendants. I hope it is a nice day, weather-wise, since I will be outside for several hours! The photos in this post are from Haiku's walks near our home (but not all on our property) during the past few days. The last one was taken from the dining room window this evening. He started moving quickly once he noticed my daughter leaning through the window to take his picture, so it is a bit blurry, but he was a pretty fellow so I'm including it despite the lack of crisp focus.
