a walk through the woods

Living in California has been such a treat compared to the flat terrain of the Chicago suburbs I grew up in.  I love exploring all the trails and hiking paths throughout the county — they’re everywhere!  Unfortunately, even with nature at our footsteps, it is nearly impossible to get my eldest son off the computer and out the door.  He is what my mom would call an “indoor plant.”  The other day I was miraculously able to get him out for a hike (of course, with great reluctancy).  Ironically, it was my more adventurous younger son who whined practically the whole way.  My eldest just stated matter-of-factly that the hike turned out better than he thought it would.  Coming from him, I’ll gladly take that any day.


Have something to say? Would love to hear it!
