We had one of those very Mondayish sort of Mondays today.
The weather has really cooled down. Our schoolwork went much too late today and we only got outside in the last hour of daylight. Of course, it was chilly and the children requested hot chocolate to warm their fingers and bellies. I grumpily made it, but was rewarded with the sight of three welly-footed children tramping around elegantly with their white china mugs of cocoa and a flask filled with even more under our eldest's arm, kicking newly-fallen leaves, and discussing interesting names for their favorite parts of our little forest.
