Life is more fun when we have adventures. Adventures give us something to look forward to, they broaden our point of view and enrich our lives. For infants, adventures are part of everyday life. The sound of a bird, the fluttering of a leaf in the breeze, a new taste, a new person, the feel of a new fabric, scents!—the list is long.
During the summers as a teenager I taught swimming at one of my hometown’s Olympic sized pools. From June through August six levels of classes ran simultaneously, swapping out groups of kids every 30 minutes for the two hours wedged between the morning and noon workouts of the local swim team. I’d quickly grab something to eat after workout then jump into teaching one of the two levels, that by the time I was fourteen, everybody who had a vote wanted me to teach.
