Another vacation day, another walk in the woods. These walks are amazingly beautiful and fun. But the effort it takes to get this family of mine out the door can sometimes become exhausting. It seems as though my kids would be content to stay at home in their pajamas (the same pair) for two weeks straight. But once I get them out the front door they are running and skipping and enthusiastic to discover something new or some new place.
Since the kids got new rain boots for Christmas they were all very keen to try them out in a little creek just up the road from us. So off we set. Boots and all.
After a long walk up the river and a even longer walk in the woods we settled in a patch of sun and lazed and snacked on clementines.
