Yesterday was a special day...the girl's were home from school and we delighted in spending the day together. Rob still had to go to the church for a little while but we started off our day with a yummy family breakfast of eggs and biscuits & gravy. We realised that eating breakfast in the morning together as a family is indeed a rare event...we eat breakfast for dinner at least every other week...but actually eating it in the morning together? This was something special :-)
The kids and I then spent a few hours tromping around the Aracdia Mill Site in Milton. The mill site is the first and largest Early American water-powered industrial complex in Florida. We pretty much kept to the boardwalk but plan to go again with friends to traipse through the trails soon. We took a large basket and scissors and brought home flowers and plants (and weeds)to create some lovely autumn arrangements for the house. We don't know how long they'll last but we're certainly enjoying their beauty now.
Later on the girls went bike riding and returned with their own bouquet for me that they collected from the neighborhood.
All in all it was a very sweet family day. We are blessed.
