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.

Autumn Leaves!

Among the advantages of living in a “pedestrian culture” like MVD’s, pausing to savor the changing seasons ranks high on the list for me. Walking makes us take time to do that! We do take buses for greater distances or to save time when running errands downtown. But we usually walk to and from DJ’s kindergarten; it’s not quite 1.8-kilometers each way.

We especially enjoy the colors on our “favorite trees
on the walk to and from school!

Silk floss kapok trees were at their peak about a month ago.

And this month – as an added bonus – we’re trying to save “bus money” for summer camp! At the beginning of the month, JM figured out and then set apart all the bus money we would spend, riding to and from school, in one month; every time we walk instead, we put that amount in our “camp fund” box. (JM is especially trying to encourage the teens from church to see that there are real, daily ways we can all start saving for camp!)
