Our yard space is small, which makes me sad. But beyond the grass lies a world of field, flower, woods and berries that brings joy to my heart. The walk into the field gives us grassy goodness, fresh daisies for our home, and a short walk to the woods, and beyond the woods is an unused dirt road stretching for miles. There we can run, bike, or find wild blackberries, and the dog can run free to her heart’s content. The road offers views of the mountains through the tall trees, too. It’s all so good. Now to get my kids to go there on their own, without me, to dream, build and explore as we want them to.
