I am not naturally an outdoorsy person. There is just a part of me that does not look forward to getting outdoors, in the heat and with all those yuck things...like insects and dirt. I know! I know! I am such a big baby. I blame it on my Mom (sorry Mom). She is not a big outdoorsy person and I think it rubbed off on me. When planning fun activities for my kids, I always think of things like museums and library fun....getting outdoors is rarely on my radar. It just isn't something I think of doing for fun. Going outdoors is what I have to do to get from my house to my car (I wasn't lying about not liking to get outdoors! Haha!)
With this new school year, I vowed to plan more outdoor fun for my littles. I would step outside my comfort zone and do something outside....in the sun...where all those insects are...oh and the dirt is too! This past week we ventured outdoors for a fun homeschool group hike. We went to the Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail. Lovelies, I couldn't believe it! I got outdoors and actually enjoyed it!
We ended up hiking about 6 miles, with a stop for a picnic lunch in between. The weather was beautiful, the kids didn't whine, and we all got some energy out of our system.
I think more outdoor adventures are on the horizon for this family.
What do you do to get outdoors and have fun! I am all for fun family ideas!!
