We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness. David Orr from "Earth in Mind"

At the Gardens
It was a day of firsts and lasts. We went to the Botanic Gardens with our Thursday friends for the last time this morning. We found an out of the way garden with only one gate and let the kids run around while we sat and talked. We biked over from their house and didn't have strollers, Alder was happy to walk everywhere. This is one of those things that I have been dreaming of since he was born to walk with him holding hands rather than pushing him or carrying him.
