the lovely lisa at 5 orange potatoes has brought my attention to *children and nature awareness month* spearheaded by richard louv, author of *last child in the woods* and chairman of the children and nature network. lisa has challenged us all to get outside with our children everyday this month and to post a picture on our blogs. now, those of you who read my blog know that it is not likely i will post everyday, but we WILL be outside!
in fact, since the weather has warmed up a bit, i am struggling to get my kiddos to have any inside time! sienna has always preferred to spend us much time outdoors as possible. at our school, we go outside in all weather. the kids keep rain pants and rain boots at school and unless the conditions are extreme and dangerous (rarely the case) we venture outdoors at our regularly scheduled time every day. our motto is *we weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not!*
won't you join us? and just because i love this jason mraz video and i just learned how to imbed videos on my blog, i copied lisa to share it with you here. go have fun outside!
