Eleanor Leads the Way

Eleanor Leads the Way

I love this photo of Eleanor and Brian. For me, it’s a great parenting metaphor. Keeping your balance on a beam or a tightrope is a challenging situation that takes careful and considered behavior. But there is always the potential for a slip, a fall. That loss of control is what brings surprise, novelty, and yes, sometimes injury. It’s what we do when we stumble that shows our children who we are and what we believe.
