My boys have the most perfect secret getaway. Sometimes places like this can make Mom’s heart pound just a little harder. Maybe there’s a splinter waiting to hop into a tiny finger, maybe there’s a broken piece of something just waiting to make its move and scratch an innocent leg……but maybe, just maybe there are MEMORIES waiting to be made. Little boys longing to explore in the Great Forest.
The Great Forest is perfectly hidden behind Great Grandma and Grandpa Marcum’s house. As a matter of fact, from the road you can’t even tell its there. It’s there though, ready to be explored by my children just as their dad and Grandpa explored it when they were kids.
There’s nothing spectacular about the Great Forest, that is unless you are a child with an imagination. An unsuspecting person would just find an old metal bucket, a rusty old ladder, some overgrown trees and maybe an old 50 gallon drum or so.
To my children, though, its remarkable and its full of treasures waiting to be discovered.
