Learning on the Road

One aspect of traveling that I truly appreciate is the influence it has on my children. There are so many people and places that have entered into their combined consciousness that it will be a source of nostalgia for them long after I am gone. And it is also a springboard for learning so many new things.

In Wyoming they met two of the most wonderful children; Aidan and his little sister Riley. I’ve never known any two children (other than my own of course :)) with more charisma than they possess. Aidan taught Oliver, Willow, and Ivy how to pan for gold.

So many things that I can not begin to list them all, but each new experience will add to their future selves.
