Eva and I found a new spot for our non-beach “nature walks.” It’s not really new for me; I used to go all the time growing up. But it’s definitely a change from the forests of Virginia. I think it’s really important to take kids out into nature at least a few times a week no matter what kind of habitat is in your neighborhood.
Moving an hour behind so close to Daylight Savings Time has not been good for us. The kids have been waking up around 5:30 every morning, and it has been really hard on me. I hope they get used to it soon and start waking up a little later!
