We started off our first day of school this week by taking an afternoon field trip to Stone Mountain http://www.stonemountainpark.com/ (hey, one of the benefits of homeschooling is taking field trips whenever you want to!). The weather was p-e-r-f-e-c-t! It rained early in the morning, so the high was only in the 80's. Mimi (my mom) has been visiting this week and went along with us. We visited a few of our favorite attractions (the kids love playing in the Treehouse and The Great Barn). We also took the skycar up to the top of the mountain. I always get a little bit nervous when we're on top of the mountain because the kids love to run all around up there and I worry that somehow they're going to topple over the edge-yes, I know there's a protective fence, but I still worry! Lil' Nut wore herself out and slept the whole way home. I bet the public school kids didn't have as much fun on their first day back in class as we did!
Curly Girl found this cute pizza hat in one of the gift shoppes. She just couldn't understand why we wouldn't buy it for her!
