I’m so sad there aren’t any pictures, but I had a seriously amazing time reading all the kids a bedtime story—–in the treehouse! The lights were strung up around the tree & a few kids had flash lights that they pointed to the pages as I read & they commented along. It was pretty magical & I am so grateful for the opportunity! We had just finished the flooring a few days before with the kids from our Wild School & it was so special to me to be sharing this moment with them, in our treehouse that we built together! We read one of our favorites, Talulah, about a mermaid who finds that not letting others define your worth or happiness is the way to go….so funny now that I’m reflecting & thinking of all the ways that this simple story applies to our journey. Starting the Luna Hill Wild School was such a leap for us, with a few folks in our lives who were less than supportive of our big dream, but we persisted, and oh my goodness, words fail to express the joy & purpose that this program has given me!
We painted our faces with clay & the kids jumped from a rock in water that was only a foot & a half over & over….yes, it was as perfect as it seems 🙂
Thank you so much for those of you who chose to spend your weekend with us, camping out, sharing food, stories, & love for our children with one another. We are so grateful to be giving this gift of adventure & love of life to our children!
