We took an early afternoon walk and before leaving I explained that we might want to take adventure notes. My then five year old son and seven year old daughter were aware there was a pen in my hand and a little spiral notebook, and they pointed out the stuff we should write. We filled 10 tiny front and back pages telling about the first great spring day that year.
