I wish you could see this picture a little better. It was a porcupine that we had come across on the trail we were riding on. It was really cool to see one up close. It scurried up the tree ~ AS IF we were going to harm it.

The Last Day of Summer

It is officially the last day of summer ~so we loaded up the kids, packed a picnic and took the 4 wheeler out to Josh's moms property and rode around in the woods. We came upon a porcupine which wobbled its way up into a tree and a couple of deer. We then found a nice grassy, sunny spot -layed out the blanket and ate our lunch. The kids picked leaves for a project I will be doing this week with the kids in my class at school. Before we knew it, it was time to get home for naps. We all slept except for Ella who read quietly. Then later we had Jan and Gary over for supper. It was the perfect last day of summer.
