So, we were visiting my father this weekend. After church on Sunday, we drug the kids outside for a walk around part of the property.
Abby wasn’t very enthusiastic, as she wanted to stay inside watching a movie. I have nothing against movies, or tablets, or game consoles. But kids playing and exploring on a farm is a different kind of fun. You can see Miss Abby eventually got in the “swing” of things. We searched for arrowheads in some recently-turned earth, checked out some deer tracks, swung on some wild grape vines, and generally had a great time. You can see Amanda got a turn too, and even Mrs. SSP got in on the act.
My point is this. Get your kids outside once in awhile. It’s a more wholesome experience. They’ll enjoy it more. Being active is better for their health. And most of the time you can even enjoy the fun as well.
