Now that I've quit working (for pay) John and I have some days off together for the first time in four years. But he is off M, T and W. Monday and Tuesday are school days for us, and Wednesday Jack is normally at wilderness class so Lu and I hang out in town with friends. Jack didn't have class this week, so we took advantage off the odd day off and went for a family hike. How is it possible that we had never taken John to one of our very favorite hiking spots? It has drama, a little danger, climbing, caves, waterfalls! It is usually the first place we take out of town guests. I didn't yell at anyone as we were packing to leave the house. Lucy cried for only half of the hike. These are both major improvements.
