My goal is to encourage and inspire parents to spend more time in the great outdoors with their kids.

Mud Pies on a cloudy day!
The daycare kids are having a blast today making mud pies in the back yard. This summer has been a scorcher and has really been hard on us all as we've spent way too much time indoors. It's incredible how much easier my job is when we can play outdoors for a good portion of the day. The kids get along better as they play more cooperatively and creatively. They laugh and smile more. They're also more tired when they go home, unless they've napped here and if they do nap they nap longer which is a blessing. Just another month or so and we'll move most of our activities back outside. Until then, we'll gladly take every overcast hour we can get before the temps climb past 100 degrees. We give thanks to the clouds today!!!
