There were 4 very opinionated folks on this trip and only 1 of them has to take responsibility for what happens. And that one has pretty bad judgment. Also, that one is me. So I struggled with being controlling. I may have ruined the whole trip for everyone. I am trying.
Daisy wanted to play this jump roping game. I said "No! You are too little to play that!" She finally stole a token (valued at like 20 cents) and played it. And she played it well. Good thing I didn't risk 20 cents to see if she could do it and had her resort to stealing.
So I thought...I'm going to stop being a jerk. You kids can play in this creek and I will not say ANYTHING. And then Daisy fell in and lost her shoes. She was very sad. Someone should have told her to stop. I did wade in after her and her shoes. I guess instead of looking like the bad jerk I looked more like a hero with this approach?
Anyway, there were lots of pretty areas we got to see.
