In this day and age of working parents and day care providers for the very young to working parents and latch key youngsters with unlimited screen time, now more than ever it is important to get outside see the what wonders are provided to us by God. My fondest memories from my childhood was roaming the woods that surrounded my neighborhood, wading in creeks and building forts in trees. My father was an angler until the golf bug bit him, but he took me from a bamboo pole to a casting reel, from trout to Chinooks. These experiences should not be missed by families today. Live in the real world not the virtual!
