A tree-hugger among us!

Seb tree huggerWe have a son that absolutely adores being outside.  In fact, we often struggle most with his behavior related to him wanting to be outside.  When it’s time to come in, he resists terribly, or if it’s not time to be outside, he often begs to go outside.  Seriously, if this kid would be allowed, he’d be outside all. day. long.  Rain or snow, sleet or hail, hot or cold.  We remember the days when he was an infant and would cry, cry, cry.  Nothing would console him, until Tim stepped over the threshold of the door and took him outside.  It was almost magical (and rather comical) to watch – you’d hear crying, then silence, crying, silence… as Tim was going back and forth between the foyer and the front porch!  Sebastian’s love for the outdoors continues, and he’s ever-so-eager to share his enthusiasm with his baby sister, Maya.   Seb & Daddy hikingHiking SebWe took our first “family of four” hike about 2 weeks ago.  We went to one of my favorite spots – Tucquan Glen.  It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and getting out was good for the body and the soul!  Maya's 1st hikeSeb & Daddy 2We’re happy to have a little guy who is addicted to the outdoors as opposed to TV and video games.  We celebrate his enthusiasm for nature!Seb at Tucquan Glen
