Summer Road Map

1 Comment

Some people let life happen around them. They are content to sit quietly and learn from other’s mistakes. They are cautious.

Then there are those who make life happen. They need experiences to help them learn. They are not cautious.

Summer vacation started just one week ago. Already Simon has 4 large scrapes on his knees. Some were from running too fast (how do you know how fast you can run until you run too fast?). Some were from riding a 2-wheeler (yes he’s only 3, but did you think that would stop him?). He has 2 gouges on his foot from finding the only bolt sticking out of a swinging bench. He has a gash on his chin, 3 swollen fingers, and a bloody mouth from falling out of a bed (he was sure he could reach the bedside lamp switch).

Simon is a road map to our summer fun.

I’m more than a little scared to think about his teenage years.

Then there’s Sophia. She’s only legitimately worn a band-aid 3 times in her life. If she trips on something she avoids it next time (Simon will practice stepping on said item until he masters his balance and no longer trips). These two kids couldn’t be more different.

And yet they are the best of friends. They can spend hours blowing bubbles and playing at the park.

Happy Summer everyone!

  1. Like your summer story! Sounds a lot like our sons – day & night but still played together well by the hour! Although neither was that cautious! Guess the old saying is still true ‘boys will be boys!’ Enjoy them – they grow up seems in an instant!

    Thanks to your leadership & determination, your GS Team was one of the top in Canada again! Congratulations – that’s an accomplishment!
