Walking to school has become a happy activity since the rain has stopped and the sun visits regularly. When it’s a blustery morning, we’ll drive a bit and then walk through the park.

Changes have occurred with this new activity:

  • kindergartener’s teacher remarks on how well she’s doing lately
  • less whining
  • more cooperation
  • more time to share and enjoy each other during the walk to school
  • more tiny requests to stop and take photos like the one above

With the health benefits of walking and the presence of mind that occurs for me, I have been inspired to take a challenge.

What are your favorite outdoor activities when spring begins to bloom?
