With all the recent rain comes all kinds of stuff that makes my Outside Kids heart sing. And if I were a song writer (which I'm definitely not), I'd write a little diddy with these included somehow:
- Something cool happens to your brain when you see and experience a place in different seasons.
- Banana slugs can be really exciting.
- Are you less likely to slip and fall on your butt if you run versus walk on the very muddy trail?
- Knowing that you're not the only adult who is dealing with muddy clothes and kids who are wiping mud all over the car is somehow magically not such a big deal.
I'd go find a creek to explore, if I were you. There's all kinds of singing to do.
