Monday on our way home from the cemetery, I saw a roadside park with a spring. Immediately I thought of a little spring we sometimes stopped at when I was a child. I remembered how amazed I always was at water coming out of a rock. It was cold and such a special treat to get a drink of spring water. We might have only done it once or twice, but it was a big memory for me and I wanted my children to get a similar experience.
So, we stopped. This spring had a well type resevoir to catch the spring water and a pipe for anyone to use to fill a water bottle for a drink. The kids enjoyed climbing the stairways and jumping back over the little spring creek. The water was so cold!
Maybe 20 years from now, one of my children will stop at a roadside spring, just to share this memory with their children.
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
