Mornings on the water

Helen joined the high school crew team this spring. One of the many things she has missed from Waldorf is getting outside in the morning for a bit of exercise before settling into school work. She has also felt like the seasons have been passing her by a bit as they seldom get outside at school.

She has been out every morning at 5:30 a.m. for a row. She has been coming home talking about how beautiful it was and I see what she means.

Sunrise on the river

Here's her boat heading up river into the mist.

On Friday they had a very, very long row. They saw turtles, loons, geese, and ducks.
And the coaches let them gunnel up for a surprise breakfast.

What a great way to start the day.

I've always thought it would be wonderful to be part of a crew team. So smooth. Now, the overprotective mother in me wonders no life jackets??
