It all began the night before last. We needed a few more items for supper. The weather was quite accommodating, John wasn't going to be home for a few hours, so I decided that we would walk down to Hy-Vee and could get our grocery necessities for the evening meal. Lillie wore her purple puppy book bag so we could carry home our lettuce, tomato, and cheese. We only live six blocks away from the market, but I could tell the kids thought this was so cool
What made us kindred spirits is that we both share an insatiable thirst for knowledge and are so curious about everything. As we both said, "The world just isn't big enough for all the things we hope to do and would love to show our children.
We made small talk and then she said, "Hey, I found the most incredible trail and wooded area just south of Lincoln. Do you want to meet tomorrow morning with the kids and hike up the trail?" Man. I have been reading for some time Resolved 2 Worship blog. One particular place she always takes her children is a certain wooded area where they can tromp up and down streams, build huge forts out of really tall sticks and leave the construction each time to be finished the next time they are able to get back out to continue further. I loved that. I wanted to have our "Little Narnia." I hoped for tiny streams that the kids could run up and down in on hot summer nights. I wanted some place that once those shallow streams were frozen over we could tromp up and down cracking the ice. I found it right off Saltillo Road. John said, "I've been looking for a place like this since we moved back to Lincoln."
