My memory is when my brother and I used the swing set to create a mud…

A Clearing in the Woods

It took two days of asking and bargaining, but I got Aurora and Stephen to take a hike with me. Actually, for months I have "led by example." I walk or hike whenever possible. Stephen and Aurora know my beliefs about exercise and being in nature, yet they fight my attempts to get them outside. When motivating children, "lead by example" gets you only so far. After that it's bargain,…
