April 10th - the first lesson we learn - never expect things to go as planned
About two weeks ago, Oscar was watching an interview with Chris Hadfield, the Canadian astronaut on TVO kids, which he says was mesmerizing. But the most important thing he took away from that interview between Hatfield & a bunch of kids was this: When embarking on a great adventure, always plan for everything to go wrong. Never expect anything to go as planned. The key to an adventure is how you deal with the bumps in the road - THIS is the adventure. This way, when something actually does go right, you will be pleasantly surprised, I guess. Perhaps this also makes you find the greatest pleasure in the small things - like the perfect cup of coffee brewed over a sunrise, the chirping of crickets at night, the smile on Molly's face as she will run along the sand of a too-chilly lake, the sound of our fave tunes over the van stereo while we ride along the highway with the windows down. the promise of adventure awaits.
