Wednesday was a public holiday. As a family we went off to the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve and did some walking. We did the 10km Bokmakierie trail, which is about the right stretch with our youngest 8 years old. It is great to have the whole family big and able enough to walk by themselves. Everytime we hike we still remember the previous times where we had to carry a child at least part of the distance!
But now we also look to the future and with our eldest already 15 years old we know that this is family 'prime time'. All too soon the family will be getting smaller again as the kids grow up and move on.
