Post-Rain Hike

Everyone can keep their …

The hike started off clean enough… it’s a 30/30 hike, one that we are quite familiar with at Sioux Passage. But then the kids spotted the old tree bridge across the creek. I have never let them cross it because I was always so afraid of them falling! Well, I am no longer afraid!  See, …

I have a plan: the 30/30 hike challange

I have a plan! Which is such a good feeling😊 I’m usually spontaneous and lack strict routine and schedule, but I typically have an idea for what I’m doing! Except… We are becoming a wild family and I don’t really know how to do that! I’m just as inexperienced as my kids are when it comes …
