As a family we love to go out and explore the woods. In the winter we love to go out snowshoeing and find a nice place to have a fire and drink some hot coco. Isa usually loves to go out on an adventure but up here we have had some really cold adventures. The last few times we have gone out Isa has been very discouraged, cold, and misserable. We ended our last snowshoe trip with Isa saying that she never wanted to do that again.

Early this Sunday morning Isa and her friend Judy anounced that they wanted to go outside and play. It was a balmy 20 degrees so be bundled them up and sent them outside. After being outside for a short while Isa came in and asked us for some wood. Hmmmm the mother in me asked, "What do you plan on doing with the wood?"

"We need the wood to build a fire." Isa replied. So with a little adult assistance Judy and Isa went on their own winter adventure complete with a fire and hot coco. Sometimes you just have to have faith that the things you hold as important are being absorbed by your children and if your lucky they are willing to share them with others.
