Outside every day…


I am lucky enough to live just minutes from a lake. While I’m a bit of a snob about water because of where I grew up and I would prefer an ocean, the lake is better than no water at all. My kids ADORE the lake. There are several swimming areas with small sandy beaches and my kids have a blast digging and splashing.

We’ve been going several times a week, sometimes after I get off work. Even if it’s just 45 minutes or an hour, I still appreciate the time outside in nature. It provides the unstructured play that I believe is vital for children. It’s relaxing and restorative for me as well.
