Not all tough moments age gracefully.
This one did...
It happened this summer.
We found out too late that this path wouldn't take us where we'd planned, and decided to cut across country, through the thick forest. Just a hundred meters or so. No big deal.
Just before we enter, my husband warns the children that there might be wasp nests in the ground. Rubbish, say I. I spent 28 summers wandering through the forests of this land and not once did I come across such a nest. You'd have to put your foot in it, rather literally!
Five minutes later this was exactly what our sweet 5yo did...
By now both his and my sting sites have fully healed and only the story remains.
And this photograph.
