Inspiration from this book has sent us seeking and honoring and getting in touch with the NEED for time spent in nature. My friend alyson found quite the treasure in this spot by the river and asked us to join her and her little ones last week (thanks again Al!). It really is perfect because there is a lot of space, a lot of rocks to throw in the water, and the river is quite shallow. Needless to say, it only took about five mintues for Asher to get knee deep in the light current. There was so much room to explore and discover all within eyesight. These are the types of environments that I enjoy most with my babes...where they are a bit more "free" to run off and play and get good and dirty! I am quite confident that this little spot will be the setting for many wonderful adventures! Just wanting to share a bit of the beauty that I sometimes fail to acknowledge in the desert landscape. Looking at these pictures helps me remember and realize that beauty is all around us.
