let them lead

The cool mornings beg me to go hiking.

So we drove to Seven Mile Creek for a little wandering, climbing, playing, throwing stones, and exploring.
And it was best because we did whatever the kids wanted. They led, I followed.

Makes for a happy, peacefully, fun experience for all of us :)


52 ordinary acts of kindness

Is this a great idea or what?
"A year of kindness.  Our family project is off and running!  Our commitment in 2011 is to complete one out-of-the-ordinary kindness act each week for one full year.  Each month we pick from a kindness “type” and our challenge is to complete it before week’s end. "
