While I do miss work dearly, I am trying to embrace a more “simpler” lifestyle.We’ve been doing more outdoor activities with the kids such as going to different state parks for swimming and hiking.Now that they are a bit older, they can manage walking longer distances.
On one hike, my two “oldest” lasted over an hour.It was a an art institute in hike form.This made it fun for the kiddos since they were curious as to what they’d find next!This partially day, my youngest was at her Grammy’s house. She would not have made it through the sculpture trail as it did have some steep moments.
This has been one of the “pros” of quarantine; finding more “nature” based activities to do with the kiddos. I would always resort to the indoor park or the pool, but there is a ton of shade in most of the places we’ve gone to.
While there is nothing wrong with going to an indoor park or pool, I really want to expose the kiddos to nature the way my mom did for me when I was younger.
We would go to the Botanical Garden and different nature spaces in NYC.
I’d like to keep on this “nature” tradition as this is one of the reasons why I moved to New Hampshire; to experience more of the great outdoors.Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!
