(The promise was made three years ago).
This is the jungle and here is where the adventure begins...
One has to be prepared before going into the jungle....glove, parang...and a smile!!!
What is that finger pointing to? He must have seen something....I think I see it too!
Wow!!!! A big spider. He claims it to be the biggest spider he has ever seen. In our fast paced world where entertainment comes in a click and it has to be instant; I am glad that my son still finds discovering nature a wonder.
It's a red leaf...different from the others. He used his parang to cut branches like this as they made their way in.
This was as far as they went. See our house in the distance.
When they returned after half an hour, there was so much plan in their brains. They are returning into the jungle soon to build a tree house! After that they plan to camp in there...(hmmm...).
A closer look at the plan. I wonder if the tree looked as simple as this and building a tree house is as simple as it sounds! They are going to ask Uncle Albert to sell them some old wood (hahaha).
It's really good to see the boys enjoying their evening together doing something as simple as this. Looking at how teenagers grow now and how attached they are to the world of internet and computers; I am very thankful that my boy still finds this entertaining. May we find joy in doing simple things like this.
