For most of September of 2019, we continued to explore the places and activities in and around our new home, and we were thrilled to have our beautiful friend, Jess, come for a visit.
Fort Ticonderoga in New York, is less than two hours away, so when they offered up a homeschool day full of lessons and activities, we were totally on board. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we really enjoyed learning about the fort’s role in history and admiring the scenery as well. James will always say his favorite part is the cannons.
In mid-September, the village of Stowe puts on a really cool car show called The British Invasion, which is the largest all-British car show in the US with over 600 cars each year. Obviously, we went.
The amazing Jess came for a visit and we are always so happy to have her around. She is the kind of person that makes you feel seen and heard and loved, and our lives are all richer for her being part of them. I remain ever grateful for her friendship and touched that she values us enough to visit. We played games, explored nature, celebrated OktoberFest at the Von Trapp Brewery, and went apple picking at the Shelburne Orchards.
