A sense of curiosity is nature's original school of education.
-Smiley Blanton

My sense of curiosity brings us to many parts of Colorado!  My boys have every Friday off, and we try use this day to explore.  On this particular exploration, we went to a spot just a few miles away.  A spot I have never been to in my 15 years of living in Colorado.  A gorgeous canyon area tucked back in the hills!  

 If a person didn't have curiosity, would they miss out on beauty all around them?

When out and about my boys have all kinds of fun exploring!

They found this tree along the path.  They poked at it and discovered it was water logged and super easy to chisel.  We stopped for quite some time and they had fun carving!


Boys natures= curiosity.

Our curiosity got the best of us while walking along the trail.  We noticed rock climbers on the cliff walls, and stopped to watch.

Take your work seriously but yourself lightly.

I love these lighter moments as a mother!  Who wouldn't love being kissed or blown on by one of your children?! (photo credit to Alli)

A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor life on a single hope.

I had no idea what to put for this quote. :-)  
 Instead of stressing, I decided to give you a little taste of our fall we've been having here in CO.
I love Fall! 
It is my favorite season.
The smells. The color. The weather. 
My only thing... I wish it lasted a while longer!

I'm hoping my circle of friends figured out this quote better than I did. :-)

There is a great difference between knowing a thing and understanding it.
-Charles Kettering and T.A. Boyd

I know my boys know, that I love them.  I don't think they understand the depth of that love.  They probably won't understand it, until they have children of their own.
