My robust school schedule quickly dwindled after the first two weeks. Lots of family/life stuff happened and it didn’t make sense to keep going so rigidly during those weeks. We hosted co-op days, took a ton of field trips, built a lot of stuff, visited family, cooked food, etc. I’m going to plan out a few weeks in advance for next week and see how it goes.
One day last week we went to Lower Macleay Park in Northwest Portland. It’s a really incredible trail that goes all the way to the Pittock Mansion. It’s super Old Portland. This trip was kind of weird though because there were so many joggers and so many dogs that were allowed to take dumps on the trail! It was disgusting. I’ve never really experienced that so grotesquely in any of our hikes around Portland, ever. So bad.
But the forest itself is quite breathtaking.
