“Can I go outside?” says the Princess EVERY day after school. Do you know how excited I am to hear this? Can she go outside? Um, YES! YES! YES! Please go outside. Please run and play and get some exercise. Please do!
I get very excited when I hear this question for several reasons. First, I didn’t hear it very often when we were in our interim house. We were so thankful to be hanging out in that house while ours was built, but there weren’t many kids on the street. I almost NEVER heard that question. Now, there are over ten little girls within shouting distance. LOVE IT! And, so does the Princess.
Second, my Princess needs to get daily exercise. All little princes and princesses need to get daily exercise. They do! This is coming from someone who HATES to exercise. But, when you’re playing and running and having fun, it doesn’t seem like exercise. I love to watch my Princess having fun outside.
While the Princess usually just runs around and hangs with the friends, sometimes, she needs help discovering an activity. Did you know that the National Wildlife Federation has an activity finder? It does. You can go to their website, and find some fun activities for kids to do outside. We all need to be outside more! With Earth Day just a few days away, what better way to be kind to our earth than being outside and enjoying the splendor of all that God made!

Hmm, well no kids here, but when I baby sit for my friends kids they like to chase the dog around or splash in the little kiddie pool! 🙂
