Nature Hike

I think it’s really important for kids to get unstructured play time, so today we took off into the woods to explore. The area behind my barn has miles of trails and lots of lovely scenery.


My daughter is very into fairy tales right now, so I told her we were on a long journey through the woods to find a castle. She loved that. My son was perfectly happy to pick up sticks and splash in puddles. These are the kinds of memories I want my kids to remember- discovering nature, using their imaginations and forgetting that they live in a suburb.
