Autumn in Tsyurupinsk

We had such a beautiful day today! I've been wanting to do a fall family picnic out across the river. I had noticed that the weather forecast showed today as the last day of sunshine before some rain, so I had been planning on going today instead of doing school. Then, when we got up this morning, I was so disappointed: they had changed the forecast. Clouds? I could see them out the windows, too. Boo. But we went anyway. It seemed to be getting darker and darker. By the time we were in the marshrutka, the girls were asking me, "What if it rains?"

Then, we got out, and there was the sun!

See the clouds breaking up?

All of the girls in this family wanted to take a picture, but...
...the boys didn't want to!

We came back just in time for art and music school for the older ones, and this for the little one:

He was exhausted!
