On The Push And Pull Of Parenting

I got to watch my 8-year-old son grow up a little bit more last weekend through a big picture window in the middle of the Maine woods.  It was a rather luxurious camping trip with 6 other families including 8 children ages 5-11, a unique opportunity for our group in that we had the grounds to ourselves including use of the yurts and and the full kitchen in the community dining building.
