Kane, Catching Up

I have a picture of Kane from the first hike that we took with the Carlsons, 2 1/2 years ago, just like this one of Maxwell and Judy.

My boys are good judges of character, and they take to Judy. Kane spent a lot of that first hike holding Judy's hand, and yelling "Wait up!" to Bella and Regan as he ran after them.Things are a little different now. Maxwell was the one yelling "Wait up!" this trip, and while Kane still has a tendency to be chasing the girls...

...he has started to catch up and pass them. He is forging his way as a leader and finding out how to deal with being the odd man out when he's with the girls.

He likes being in front, being a leader, and I can't wait to see where it takes him in life. Right now, it is taking him to the top of the hill as quickly as he can get there, to look back and say, "Catch up!" instead of "Wait up!" and I think he had a pretty good time camping because of it. He's finding his place with the girls, and he was even the first to jump in and catch apples that Adam was dropping from the tree. 
He has come so far, and he really had a good time.
