It was getting close to sunset so I grabbed these two and we set out for one of the highest hills in the neighborhood. It’s not always easy with the schedules of four kids, but being intentional about slowing down and getting outside with no real plan keeps us grounded and honestly keeps my head on straight. They may have gotten three thorns stuck in some toes but it was quickly forgotten about when determination set in to collect the perfect sticks to build a stick teepee and an ant bridge, all while the sun crept lower and lower in the sky. We sat and watched the sun dip below the hills in the distance and then headed back down the hill. All and all I’d chalk it up to an okay Friday evening.
