The girls explored 3 miles of a tree burnt volcanic zone (where they spotted a tattletale sign of a bear), chased forest frogs, and went to the local dam to catch, and of course, release tadpoles. They even left the big clear bucket we brought along for the next set of kids.
We are very fortunate that my husband has a job, we bought property 10 years ago when it was dirt cheap, and of course that we have the ability to hike, interact with nature, and spend time with family.
At each magical experience, my daughters spent a little bit of time discussing how, if they had a choice, Gaza children could be doing similar things on their summer day.
