A walk

We are so blessed to live in a community rich with natural places to play. A grey wet winter tends to keep this a secret, but with spring creeping in I sense my kids really needing to get outside.

Last week we made it out on a sunny day to play at one of our neighborhood parks.

What I needed the most was the reminder to sit back
and watch what caught their fancy, to let them lead me for awhile.

Of course, we had to get right up close to the creek, at first I didn't think I was up to it, all my grown up concerns got in the way, but in the end their curiosity won me over. I'm so glad it did!
