I hope you never lose your sense of wonder. You get your fill to eat, But always keep that hunger. May you never take one single breath for granted. God forbid love ever leave you empty handed. I hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean. Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.... I hope you dance.

We are so blessed to live in the Pacific Northwest.

The girls attend a wonderful resource center for home schoolers called Edmond Heights K12. I know that I have mentioned this several times but I just love to talk about the center. There are so many opportunities that they would not have the opportunity if they attended public school. Any who, last month one of the seniors started a hiking group. This group is definitely not for beginners. In the 4 weeks they have been going, they have hiked over 25 miles!

Heather has been going with Sarah Elizabeth. Heather said that they are doing some of the best hiking she has ever done. They have been to Wallace Falls in the foot hills of the Cascade Mountains, Monte Cristo, Lorde Hill State Park and a local hike that ended at a beach by the Puget Sound. Waterfalls, ghost towns, forging rivers, and stunning beauty what more could they ask for? Sarah Elizabeth and Heather have taken some breath photo's. You will find a sampling through out this page.

Hope you enjoy that photo's~Blair

Yes folks, that is snow in early October.

There were leaves even bigger than this!

Will be posting more pictures of their hikes as they become available.
