Sum-It-Up Sunday : Week #5

Hi all! It's been another wonderful week here at St. Mike's.

Friday night, we visited Champlain College for a three-part art show: poetry, visual media, and dance. (My dance professor from last semester choreographed an amazing interactive dance piece!) With all the other colleges in the area, it's easy to hop on the city bus or take a short car ride and catch events, shows, and other goings-on at our neighboring schools!

This weekend, my parents came to town for a visit! We spent Saturday in Shelburne, kicking off the day with a hike at Mt. Philo! 

The foliage is just starting to peek through! In a couple of weeks, this view will be a gorgeous fall rainbow!

After lunch at Folino's Pizza, we had to show them around one of our favorite spots- Shelburne Orchards! We made out with some delicious hot cider, a bag of cider doughnuts, and of course some apples with help from our GrocerySak's! This past summer, my Aunt made use of some photos from a past photography assignment and created these eco-friendly grocery totes (great for grocery shopping and apple picking alike)! Check out her website here, and her Instagram @grocerysak! 

This morning, my parents and I made our way downtown for a healthy, delicious breakfast at Vermont Juice Company!

They both got the acai bowls, which were a hit. I tried their banana ice cream for the first time, and it was amazing! Totally good for you, complete with the taste and texture of ice cream.  

And so goes another week at St. Mike's! And as the colder months approach us, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind all you prospective families that yes, there are countless things to do around here besides ski (even though it happens to be my favorite winter pastime)!!! One of my favorite parts of being here has been exploring around and finding new places and activities to spend my weekends with. And after almost four years, we're still discovering new things. The possibilities are truly endless!

Stay tuned for the next What-to-Know Wednesday on the 5th!
