Each month this year I have worked to weave a new habit into the fabric of my days.
After two months of working on the difficult, never-will-be-mastered habit of taming the technology monster, May’s habit was fun: get outside with the children for at least 15 minutes daily.
This is easy in the mild parts of the spring and fall. In the dead of winter and heat of summer it gets harder. However, the effort is worth it.
Little Meg loves being outside in her stroller!
Here are some of our favorite things we did outside together in May:
- Play at the fountain park
- Make mud soup
- Have a picnic
- Work in our garden
- Play “red light, green light”
- Ride a friend’s horses
- Go on walks
- Play in the sand
- Blow bubbles
- Go to the park. Again and again and again. (The munchkins have finally mastered their fear of slides. Hurray… maybe!)
How about you? Did you work on a new habit this month? What’s your favorite thing to do outside.
