It is wonderful to me that Caleb and I can share an interest in hiking together. It gives us a chance to talk privately about whatever we want and we get a chance to bond and have fun together. I get to see him grow in skill and strength...to the point where I'm becoming annoyed - he can hike faster than I can and he's getting pretty strong; I've still got him in skill and stamina, but he's catching up quickly. [sigh]
It is just such a blessing to me that Caleb shares some interests with me as it really helps me stay close to him as a father.
Now.....if I can just find something like that with Gavin I would feel truly blessed.
