We started here writing about cooking healthy, whole foods as a family. But because we like playing outside even more than cooking, we wrote a lot about that, too. We’ve decided now to focus the blog solely on getting outside, every day, as a family. Because as the kids get older, it seems to be getting harder. And I don’t want to raise two pasty screen-fed zombies more comfortable on a couch than in the open air. As adults, I hope they’ll remember the smell of a Western Pennsylvania creek, the feel of mud between the toes, and the squiggly tickle of an earthworm moving across the palm.
We’re kicking it off tonight with our participation in the National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout! Unfortunately, only two of us are braving the rain tonight. But we plan to make the other two so jealous of our fun that they promise to do it next year. Or maybe next week!
