There are few things we enjoy as much as a family hike. Today's perfect fall weather inspired us to break from routine. Our home school's "recess" was held at a beautiful county park.
We took both dogs, and 11-year-old Poochita demonstrated for her new protege, Sunshine, her long-standing trick of running up the playground ladder and happily descending the slide, toe-nails screeching.
Even after the demonstration, Sunshine was not keen on following Poochita's lead so Joe tried to help her to see there was nothing to fear. I'm afraid she still wasn't convinced!
As soon as we started walking, Tessa realized that in our rush to get out of the house she'd forgotten to change shoes.
Princess Bink also forgot something, but there are many advantages to having six older sisters.
The hike allowed plenty of sibling bonding-time.
Spontaneity can be so much fun!
Grateful to God for His generous goodness
