A Week, Briefly (10/5/20)
We had a joyful General Conference weekend. And we celebrated by taking a hike on our neighborhood trail and following that with a campfire on Sunday night.
The kids discovered that throwing piles of dry leaves would make the fire flare up and burn intensely for a short time. I allowed them to do it over and over again, and they began doing a grunting-stomping-celebrating-fire sort of dance.

In the afternoon we picked Sir Walter Scott up from the airport, did chores, played outside, ran errands, and had another campfire.
But before the campfire, we had dinner. And just before dinner, I was carrying 2 gallons of boiling hot soup to the table. Mister Man ran around a corner into me, and the soup spilled out onto his left shoulder.
On Tuesday, we did some core subjects in the morning because we had ABA therapy scheduled as usual. We read and discussed Aesop's Fables during Elevenses, and then everyone was free to enjoy himself or herself as desired.
