Adalia (16), Tilly (13) and Judah (14).
Have I mentioned lately how much I enjoy having teenagers? Well, I do. These three had were born in less than 2 1/2 years with Tilly and Judah being only 12 months and 3 weeks apart in age. It made for a wild few years with lost sleep, constant breastfeeding, bazillions of diapers, crying and having almost too many babies to hold.
Now? Now the three of them have decided to tackle the Appalachian Trail. Apparently they read about it (in a school book of all places) and thought it looked awesome. Nevermind that it takes six months to hike, they’ve got all the time in the world. And so they are training. We happen to live smack in the middle of a beautiful valley and just down the road from a hiking trailhead, so they’ve taken to hours-long hikes up the mountain I stare at every day as I blog. You can read about one of their recent adventures here at Blogging by the Dozen.
