This is my first post, and I don't know where to begin----life is so full and complex, so how do I narrow my thoughts down to a few paragraphs? I thought I would begin by saying that my own children are all adults, or so it seems by their birthdays, so to give back and make my life more fun, I do mentor a 10 year old girl through the Blue Ribbon Mentor Advocate program. We get together a couple of times a week. Yesterday, we went to 'The Meadow' which is a delightful place just a few blocks down from where we live. There is no longer a direct path there, so with the neighbors' permission, we walked through driveways, and under canopies of trees to arrive at the open field, wild flowers, birds, and bugs. Alana (my mentee), Andorra (my daughter) and I walked completely around the meadow, splashed in Morgan Creek, walked over the new greenway bridge, and studied the plant life carefully. It couldn't have been a nicer outing! I love Chapel Hill for its greenways and open spaces! I didn't take my camera, so these photos are from Andorra's computer from a meadow visit a while back.
