We have been to Three Lakes Park bi-weekly lately, probably because for me at least, summer is soon to end. I am so thankful for this time with my daughter, and she’s gotten to be quite the naturalist. She caught fish with her net today and pointed out these dragonflies and a cow killer, which was too quick to get a shot of. For so long I thought she could take or leave our nature excursions, but these days, I honestly think there is a chance that one day she’ll remember them. She grows confident when we circle these lakes, and she relaxes, and we both leave refreshed.
It’s not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it while you can. While it’s still here.
