Sap cycles and lunar eclipses....
Tuesday, December 21, 2010
This morning at 3:00, I woke my children up to see the lunar eclipse. Suprisingly, they all climbed out of bed and came with me. It was pretty cool and as they stood rubbing their eyes (16, 14, and 12), I was reminded of the time I dragged a ladder out and climbed a tree in our front yard.
The goal was a sap cycle that had formed about 10 feet up off a branch. I just had to have them taste it, because the sugary ice cycles don't form that often. It was only slightly sugary, but as I watched their eyes light up, I was glad I had made the effort. I guess my point is, take time to make memories with the ones you love. That is what life is all about !
