I posted today at My Joy Filled Life. It’s called
My guest post is about encouraging you and your family to get outside, learn, grow, be active and connect with nature. I’ve noticed in myself a hunger to reconnect with nature as I age and I’m seeing my kids are benefiting as is my backside. 🙂 My kids have always been outside playing and communing with nature, but there’s something that was missing when I was missing. I think they need to see the more “fun and free” side of me more often. I’m always busy and rushing and working. And, I think my rushing affects them.
Last night I sat for 2 hours, holding and petting one of our rabbits. I’ve mosquito bites which reminds me I need to order coconut oil, (Coconut oil on your skin keeps mosquitos away, it’s chemical free AND feeds your skin.) but it was so peaceful to set there, the sounds of the dogs patrolling, the rustle of the chickens and the sound of the crickets and other night things. I could feel the breeze blowing and simply sat there while the lightning bugs danced looking for their mate.
Check it out and if you missed yesterday’s post the ‘Nature Scavenger Hunt List‘ is still available. The two go very well together in my opion as they’re both about getting the kids, and you, outside experiencing nature. Remember, the joys of your childhood and share that with them…and yourself. No one ever said there was an age limit on cuddling a fuzzy bunny.
