Josh, Braxton, and Kaydon went on an overnighter last weekend. They went up to the Uintahs. Josh and the boys said it was beautiful. It was nice and cool at night, too. Kaydon's happy place is in the mountains. He always told me he wanted to be a hobo when he grew up and just live in the mountains. He is at home there. He doesn't care who is around, or what they think - he runs around like a wild animal and makes loud noises. He collects his walking sticks. He collects other outdoors-type treasures. He is free up there.
My kids don't have the ability to do that, but we do our best to try to let them explore and imagine as best they can. That really is a kid's job - to explore and learn.
