On Loving Puddles
We love puddles around here, the bigger the better. We even do rain dances on really boring days in the hopes of attracting some puddles.
Join me over on the Hike It Baby blog to read all about how we go about Embracing the Puddle.
Glamping Minus the Glamour
Laundry is going, bins have been pulled out of the garage, and we are T minus 24 hours until it’s time to camp! This will be the first multiple night camping trip we’ve taken with Kai, and since its in conjunction with a board game convention, everyone is especially excited.
When You Don’t Know What To Do…
When you don’t know what to do, go outside. And so we went.
A woman who means a great deal to me, passed far away. She had a rare and aggressive form of cancer and she was dead two weeks after the doctors found it. I didn’t get to say goodbye in person and I couldn’t go to the funeral.
I also had to keep little person, who didn’t understand why her Baffa was sad, occupied and happy. So I threw our weekly rhythm out, and we spent a week outside. We walked through the woods and let the trees lean in close. We walked and when there was a moment to share knowledge we did that and hoped she knew we were continuing her legacy of teaching. We walked and I grieved and Kai absorbed the world around her. And that was enough.
