Looking for Adventure

I came down the stairs this morning and heard this.." Mommy, we are going on an adventure!"

Camo-hat, back-pack, little baggie of strawberries, and a note-pad ... and they were out the door.
What were they looking for? I have no idea.. but, it was apparent that they were on a mission.
I love this.
My children playing together - eager to be with one another, and having FUN together.
So, today it was my 8 year old, and my 4 year old, and they found what they set out to do - FIND ADVENTURE!

Life does not have to be entertaining to have fun.
Our children do not need expensive toys, or non-stop play-dates, constant plans, or entertainment thru media.

The more we give to them when they are young, the less they will have to look forward to, and the more they expect.

Every day is an ADVENTURE! Take Hold of it- and capture it.

    It's good for kids to use their imaginations! I had a pretty good one as a kid. :)

    This is awesome! I know too many people's kids who don't know how to function if they are home for an entire day. Playdates, classes at the rec center, new toys, amusement, amusement, amusement! In and of itself, it isn't bad, but to NEED it constantly or else you don't know how to 'just be' - that's bad!

    As we speak, Bella is drawing treasure maps so we can go on a scavenger hunt and find dinosaur eggs so we can make nests for them to live. Hmmm, now where do I find some dinosaur eggs?

    Great post September. Love your parenting technique and core values!

    My kids just need the good ole' outdoors and they're set. In fact, they don't play with toys, they make toys!
