In catching up on my blog reading today, I found out that April is Children & Nature Awareness Month. I'm happy to say that although I didn't know it, we've been outside since the 1st. I also did a little bit of reading on the Children & Nature Network there are lists of resources and a list events happening 'near you' for those who'd like ideas and people to join in with.
Now that I know (officially), we will definitely be participating and I'll be more intentional about making sure we are out every day. I'm even joining in the challenge going on at 5 Orange Potatoes--to go outside each day this month, rain or shine. We're to help spread the word by posting a single photo of our child/children outside each day. I think we can handle that! :D
I have plans to plant some flowers in our hanging baskets, to plant some herbs for cooking and to put up another bird feeder. My children LOVE exploring so we'll definitely make time for that as well. I'm excited to see just what we find.
Here's a few shots from the weekend. Won't you join us?
