Get out in Nature whether you feel like or not!
Hi! I’m the Mean Mom! Occasionally, anyway, I answer to that title. Today was one of those days.
Outside it was perfect!! Mid-seventy degrees, sunny, and clear! It was a perfect day for a quick stroll in nature.
After lunch we almost always walk down our driveway and hike back up. That’s right. We have our own Cardio Hill, or my exercise route right on the driveway. By the time you get to the top, you’re huffing and puffing. In fact, when we thought about purchasing our property, my husband promised me that this land would whip me into shape! He was not kidding! But, after living here for the past almost six months, I can walk up that hill way easier than I used to be able to. I’m definitely getting stronger, but need more exercise in general.
Hence, our little walk today. We strolled down, then instead of hiking back up the driveway, I challenged the boys to hike back up by way of the wet-weather creek. That’s a bit harder, but not bad for strapping young fellows; it just takes a little longer. And the boys were chomping at the bit to get back!
Enter Mean Mom
I declared the instructions, amid some groans for my reply.
Haha! What a fun day, but my boys were not easily convinced! We found some awesome treasures from Nature, however.
Read on to see what our Homeschool Nature Walk looked like this week! The “rest of the story” is over on my self-hosted blog site. See you there!
