Taryn and Charlsea share some things in common.They both love nature, trees, and have tree houses and they are both Canadian, and Canadian Westerners at that! Even though they both are from the West, they do have totally different Canadian landscapes and experiences as they live in two different provinces - Alberta and British Columbia.
“It’s your birthday month, Taryn, are you excited?" Charlsea asks Taryn. "...actually, I know you are!" she laughs as she passes through the treehouse door that Taryn so politely holds open for her.
“I am!” replies Taryn. “Let's eat our lunch in the treehouse, and I will tell you my big birthday wish and my plans."
“Oooh... do tell!” says Charlsea, “Oh, and thanks for holding the door for me.”
The girls settled down inside the treehouse, where all of the best wishes and plans are made.
“Well…" begins Taryn “My big birthday wish is that all children get to grow up playing freely in the healthy wilderness, breathing fresh air, drinking healthy water, making tree houses, watching squirrels, and maybe even getting to see other wildlife as they play. I know that we are lucky as so many children in the world don’t get to play like you and I. Who knows what kind of a world future children will get to play in."
“Wow, Taryn, that is deep and important. I think that is such a great wish!” Charlsea pondered as she munched on her sandwich. “Is it just a wish or do you think that we can do something about it?”
“Exactly my thoughts," said Taryn "I am going to plan my birthday party in a way that we can honour just that.”
“How so?” asked Charlsea. Taryn smiled.
“That’s why you and I are having this important lunch together in the treehouse….so we can brainstorm together.”
The two sat together having a great discussion and fantastic ideas were coming together…
