Just spent a magical day in the woods with kids (ages 4-6 for this week's camp) in our Vashon Wilderness Program summer camp. In our "Sit Spot" time, we gave the kids 4 minutes to touch into their hearts, and find a place where a secret treasure meant only for them was waiting. So sweet to see them wander off into the field, find a special place, and discover something special just for them. Some of the kids drew what they found. Others merely placed it into their "mind's eye".
Meanwhile, in this park, the ravens are astoundingly vocal. Another hushed moment we shared was on the trail. We all lay down on the ground and listened to something high in the trees saying (I kid you not) "Gloop ... Gloop." From last week's camp, I know (or think I know :-) ) that's a vocalization from friend Raven.
Looking forward to more adventures, mysteries, and discoveries as the week continues!
