October for teachers is a gauntlet.
The reality of a month with no given break 
(other than the weekends)
is exhausting.
Kids are tired 
(and starting to get sick), and
teachers are feeling the slump of the school year 
(how do we save the world, anyway?)

Knowing this,
hubs and I decided to plan a short weekend getaway.
We joined our Chicago-based family 

for a weekend away in 

This was our first time in the beehive state,
but most certainly not our last.

We simply had no idea of the scope of the natural beauty we'd experience...

 Kids in nature...
the joy, the simplicity.
 “A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full or wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood." - Rachel Carson 

 "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."- Rachel Carson

Our family at Swaner Nature Preserve


we will return
(hopefully soon!)
