a lesson in adventure from my kids.

We rented the movie version of “Tuck Everlasting” for the kids, since we had recently finished the book.

It was meant to be a simple movie date, but it turned into an adventure.

Cyclone built a “cave” to watch from.  It was guarded by a dragon, to was in a magical forest…and they were NOT scared.

It’s safe to say they weren’t all that interested in the movie, (it’s not a cartoon after all).

There’s something beautiful about the talent my kids have for fun.  They manage to turn even the most mundane activities into something special.

More often then not I am a road block on their adventure journeys–trying to control the mess, or the volume, or the emotions.  But when I allow their creativity to flow, uninterrupted by me, it’s like poetry.  The adventures they create, the magic they imagine.

After all, who would want to watch a “real-people” movie from a boring old couch?

When you could be watching from a magical cave.
