"go outside everyday, rain or shine"

We've joined the Get Outdoors Challenge over at 5 Orange Potatoes as a way of holding ourselves accountable for getting outside excuses. Our TV service was officially suspended today until fall (when football season starts back up for Dad!) as an experiment in all the other things we could be doing with our time. 

Today we spent three hours outside finishing our schoolwork, sketching, reading poetry, playing mom, Brice, and I even caught a few zzzz's in the breeze on the front porch. It was lovely. (Forgot the camera, so this is from last week...I'll post current pics the rest of the time...I hope!)

Planning to pack up our school books and head to a picnic table somewhere tomorrow to spend the day.

Join our project! Play along with us during the month of April for  Children and Nature Awareness Month  by posting a picture of your child(ren) each day enjoying the outdoors! Get outdoors and climb a tree! (Participants, you can copy and paste this line in your posts if you want).

Wow...what a great idea. I think my husband would die without the tv service...but he would like the savings. Maybe I will propose this idea to my little family!
