Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

“The School Boy’s Walk Home”

DJ and I are still enjoying our weekday (1.5K) walks home from K-4. And JM and E still join us – because DJ still “gets tired” about halfway. He’s found a great excuse to keep riding on Daddy’s shoulders – and he provides a progressive weight-lifting program for JM!

We often vary our route, admiring the architecture, trees and flowers, and  most recently  the change of seasons reflected in new colors on the trees along the way.

Our wandering ways remind me of a favorite French idiom – and inspiration for the title of this post!

Our favorite sweet gum is getting new leaves.

The silk floss kapoks are illustrating their name.

These tiny snapdragons fascinated me as a little girl, too.
Watch out for the caterpillar! He’s not known for being friendly...

It’s not at all unusual for our walk home to include a stop for a treat and sometimes a walk to a nearby plaza to eat the treat. Consequently (and when I’m in a hurry), our “meandering” might sometimes be a strategy to avoid walking past the panadería or the kioskos – places where treats are known to be sold!

This treat is appropriately named “Cara Sucia” (“Dirty Face”)!

We’re enjoying celebrating the change of seasons!
