We had a long journey from Richmond to Ingleby Cross. It was relatively flat but we needed to cross a motorway (highway), which was a bit scary. Also, we decided we liked walking with the sheep and not the cows because the smell was more pleasant. We walked for miles with our hands over our noses and mouths. :)  Yesterday, we walked another 12 miles up and down moors ( small mountains with specific characteristics). The walk was breath taking! We entered our last national park called  Scarth Wood Moor and stopped in Great Broughton for the night. Today, we leave for another long day, 20 miles, and will end up in Egton Bridge tonight. 

I am happy to report that I am feeling great! By the end of the long days my feet ache a bit but for the most part they are feeling fine. The weather has been pretty nice with rain showers of and on daily. I have been wearing four layers and that seems to be perfect. 

The last few days as I have walked, I have thought about the gratitude I have for my healthy body, the beautiful world we live in and for all the people in my life. This walk is teaching me to take the time and just say a quiet thank you for all the wonderful things in my life. I think it is important for everyone to do that on a daily basis.

Wealth Work: How is your journal coming? Have you discovered any spending patterns? The next two jars/jobs your money has are savings and play. The savings jar is the jar that a potion of your money you receive goes in for saving for something you really want. For example, a computer or even a car. You should put 10% of what you receive in this jar. The next jar is your play jar. This jar is for anything you want to do or buy in your daily life. For example, going to the movies, buying gum at the store, going out to eat etc. The fun thing about this jar is that it should all be spent at the end of every month. This jar also gets 10% of the money you receive. Your task is to talk with an adult about these two jars and to also think about what you may want to save for.
