The last Sunday for June 2018 is a wrap, and it turned out to be a beautiful Sunday.
I did precious little in the morning except enjoy reading on the deck with the dogs surrounding me. Since my backyard neighbors were out on their patio I elected to not mow the yard and turned my focus on the line of shrubs in the front yard. From 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM, I trimmed and cleaned up.
Due to Camp A Capella, vacations, and a family funeral, my teaching day was down to five students from twelve.
The Melin family invited me to join them for a trip to Huffman Prairie where the Wright Brothers conducted numerous flight tests between 1904-1906. We drove around the perimeter of the park and then strolled through the nature preserve of native flowers and plants. It was the first time I’d ever ventured through the fields and it was relaxing and refreshing.
We left the historic prairie setting and headed to Woodland Fen to see the beautiful display of lightning bugs. It is the newest, neatest park with a nice wood-structure pathway and I’ve never seen so many lightning bugs all at once.
I enjoyed spending time with the Melin family, especially since it was Nicole’s birthday!
A perfect Sunday!
