Hiking Club

July 13, 2015

A few years ago, some of our homeschooling friends had a summer hiking club, but it was mostly geared towards older kids who could do miles-long hikes.  I think E was a baby at the time, or possibly 18-months old who hated to be in a carrier.  D had pretty short legs at the time as well.  Needless to say we didn’t join in too often.

But one of my friends said she was planning hikes this summer that would be doable for N, her 5-year-old.  I said, “Count us in!”  If N could do it, then E could do it, and it wouldn’t be so strenuous that I couldn’t take Little A as well.  So we’ve been hiking twice together.  A and C missed the first time because they were at scout camp.  We’ve been to the Temple Quarry many times though, so they didn’t miss out too much (not to mention they did some serious hiking at scout camp.)

I was amazed at all the pictures E let me take of him.  He never wants to be in pictures, at least not with the whole family.  Sometime we’ll look back at 2015 and wonder where E was, because he isn’t in any family pictures.

You can see the marks on this stone from the quarrying.  Stone was cut here for the Salt Lake Temple.
