Before I moved to the village I live in now, I lived on a farm. I was able to see the seasons change by watching the life cycle (and fleece cycle) of the sheep, the apples on the trees and the birds in our garden. Now I live in suburbia where I can more readily collect a multitude of leaves but somehow I have felt more disconnected to nature and her rhythms. It was right before our midterm break when I decided to slow down our school drop off and pick up walk. Even in the two weeks I have been doing it, the things I have noticed with my daughter have been so soul nurturing.
Here are a few pictures taken on our journey to school.
