Childhood Differences — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you for bringing back some great memories! Your childhood sounds much like my own. It is different times that we live in and parenting is WAY different. I used to run wild on this farm (my Grandparents owned this land before we built our house) but I would not let my kids…The way the crow flies we are about 1/2 mile from the interstate. Who knows what kind of strange person could wonder through those woods. (the police have been back to search our barn for a criminal on foot)
    But we do what we can in teaching responsible independence, integrity, strong minds & bodies. I just have to say again how much I love your blog and how you really make me think about things! Have a blessed day!

  2. It’s funny, I grew up in a small town and we now live in a small town. Since we are right next to the church {without a parking lot!} we’ve been teaching Sophie to ride in the church gym before we set her loose on the towpath which is dirt 🙂

  3. Those are great pics! I think it’s great that you take them to ride in the church parking lot. There’s something about riding a bike that makes you feel free. The wind in your hair and the sense of accomplishment and strength. Go, kids, Go!
