Every evening, ok, almost every evening, we go for a walk around the property. It has become such a part of our routine that when we don’t go, Joe asks, “Walk around the poperry?” after supper.
This ritual has become even more fun now that Ray cut a maze in the back pasture. A real maze with dead ends, twists and turns. Joe loves going through it. I follow him as he decides which way we are going to go, shouting out an “Oh no!” when we hit a dead end.
I cherish these walks around the property. I like to look at our garden and our land and think about all that we have done and all that we have planned.
These walks with the family are better than any tv show, video game, movie or book. We are strolling along, writing our own story and dreaming up the future.
