Bring it on!! We all got up this sunny, cool saturday morning and headed out for a "fun" morning of geocaching. Chris mentioned it the other morning and i naively agreed. Maybe tromping around in the woods with no clear direction(to me...however, he was the one holding the GPS and pointing at the vague and distant trees saying, "it is over there") just isn't my thing. I try to play it cool for the kids but every once in awhile i lost my calm and cool composure, just a little. Like when we were climbing straight up a muddy slope and my good sneakers were getting all muddy and the bugs just would not leave me the heck alone. But my Avery is a natural, she got the roaming the woods gene from Chris. She climbed and whacked her way through the brush and low tree limbs like a pro. She even crossed a stream, rock hopping style. Something about the outdoors and being a "hiker" transforms her. I am so glad. She loves it!!! She gets tired after a little while but her legs are not as long as everyone else so we cut her a little slack. And as the pictures tell, Mitchie did a whole lot of riding. Otherwise we would have had to listen to him cry and ask to be picked up and carried the whole time. He will grow into this outdoors thing, i think...and maybe i will too...who knows. Chris would be so happy.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
Join in the Fun
