Summer reflections 1: Climb High

My son’s sixth-grade class climbed Mount Mansfield as a celebration of their accomplishments, and I had the pleasure of being a chaperone on the hike. It was a humid day, the hike having been postponed from the previous day because of thundershowers. As we reached the top, clouds began to move in, which obscured the great view.

Doesn’t he look thrilled? 😛 I couldn’t be prouder.
