Some days seem too fast
When it gets like this, I take the boys for a walk.
Most times, along with our water bottles, we take binoculars, pads and pencils
to take notes or draw pictures of our discoveries.
When we start out, the boys are running and very loud,
full of energy
but after a time
the only sounds you hear
are footsteps and breathing
I love our farm
Its so easy to disconnect
To step away from it all -
It calms the soul for all of us
I love my walks with the boys
Sometimes I get sentimental about them
How much longer will they want to take walks with me?
Look at how small their footprints are....
Watch how they stare in amazement at ants crossing a path....
He actually took my hand to hold....
It is a season isn't it?
Most days, I try to remember that fact.
On some days it harder than others to keep that in mind.
When we are having a day like that, I take them for a walk.
I know its time to slow down - all of us.
To be still
To be present
To remember that it is only a season
So I enjoy every walk......
