Summer finally comes to a close and I can breathe again. I love September very much. It brings me all kinds of peace. My calendar is as full as ever, but I actually have moments during the day when I complete full thoughts. We did have one last hurrah before school started, though….
(Me x 1 Excedrin) + 6 kids + 90º = a great day at the Montshire Museum of Science. On the last day of August, we drove an hour and a half to the border of VT/NH to visit one of our favorite Vermont museums. It’s a great little spot with tons of walking trails, a small science museum, and a water play area (in the summer). We saw live baby turtles, shaped sand dunes with sound waves, watched leaf-cutter ants and honey bees at work, chanted famous Shakespeare lines over a pot of fog, had bubble races through liquids of varying viscosity, and enjoyed the cool outdoor waterfall.
I might even venture to say that it was the perfect transitional day from summer fun to going back to school. It certainly was for me.
