We Know the Way.

We had the pleasure of a visit with some of our grown kids this summer.  We love to have them of course and really enjoyed some one on one time with our granddaughter who is growing so fast these days. 

 As we were experiencing very hot temperatures we retreated to the creek that borders our property. The coolness of the air beside the creek provided pleasant relief and if that wasn't enough we had the option of dipping our hot feet into the frigid mountain waters for as long as we could stand it.  

 What a perfect place for a  young child to play.  Water, sticks, and stones and some challenge.  It just doesn't get any better.  

We decided to move down the creek where there was a bit more room for Nanny and Papa's lawn chairs.  What we noticed was there was a little island of rocks that was still in the safe zone from the rushing water.  We got busy and built a bridge of rocks so we could cross over.

Navigating the slippery and sometimes wobbly rocks was challenging.

Keeping her balance and using her whole body to stay safe and get back to the bank.

And around and around she went.  Faster and more confidently each time.

Of course the song, We Know the Way, from the movie Moana, came to mind and she sang because she knows all the words (and I hummed because I do not).

We read the wind and the sky
When the sun is high
We sail the length of the seas
On the ocean breeze
At night we name every star
We know where we are
We know who we are, who we are

Aue, aue
We set a course to find
A brand new island everywere we roam
Aue, aue
We keep our island in our mind
And when it's time to find home
We know the way
