Saturday was a home day beyond my dreams...bread baking, bean soaking, pumpkin chocolate chip cookie making, and all of those things that I love that are sometimes hard to come by for me during the week. Topped off by watching my oldest at a riding clinic. That really made her feel like a big girl. And she looked like one too. Hard to believe.
Sunday brought a trip to the tack shop for new helmets (oldest had taken a few crashes and needed replacing, youngest...well thats another story) for my little ones and a blanket for the pony. And in a moment that truly warmed my heart...my 7 year old BEGGED to stop at the Maine State Museum on the way home once she realized we were in the neighborhood. Who wouldn't entertain that request! Luckily they were open and for FREE...although normally its a dollar to get in. If you are a parent or homeschooler in Maine and you have not yet taken advantage of the MSU I highly recommend it!
