    There is something magical about being outside. I can relate to telling children to be quiet, and I agree that sometimes they need to simply “let loose.” There is a wooded area not too far from here where my husband would just take the girls to walk when they were little. It isn’t exactly a park, but they could run along and then stop and squat down and look at a bug. If it took an hour to walk through, that was great. Often kids are being hustled along, and sometime they want to meander and follow whatever comes into view. Great post!

    We live without a backyard by enjoying parks, creeks, mountains, state parks, rainstorms, local sledding hills, sunsets and moonrises all year round!

    Thank you for this post!
    Highly appreciated as I am preparing for my apartment dwelling toddler to start exploring more and more of the world 🙂

    What a wonderful post. I love the Green Hour. I think I might just challenge myself on that one. I work from home and rarely see daylight.
