happy summer solstice!
After a Saturday full of charter bus ride, fire station tour, and food at a local festival, and then a Sunday morning full of Father's Day love, we finished off with the grand finale to our weekend at a Summer Solstice Celebration with our local unschooling group.
We had a lovely afternoon filled with crafting and play...
...wandering green fields, good food, beautiful surroundings.
Into the evening there was more play and conversation and music and fire. It was nice to catch up with a few familiar faces and meet so many new people.
After the sun set we lit our lanterns and walked the labyrinth in the dark. Around and around, chanting our wishes for the world.
After marshmallows and burning away any negative things from the past season, we sat by the campfire until tired little boys wanted to go home to sleep.
What a great weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate the solstice.
Summer is here! Happy Summer Solstice!
