The Great Outdoors

Every attempt is made to have the grandchildren adore the great outdoors. They have recently acquired a new property outside of town to enjoy, and this allows the children a great deal of freedom to run around. I am delighted that their lives are not centered around television programming and electronic games at this early age. A few toys are around for the 14 year old to exercise with.

Come take a walk with us!

    What a wonderful post Marie! It is so refreshing to see children being allowed to be children. The world is changing too fast for me! We try to do the same for Maisie–encourage participation in nature. The great outdoors has brought me so much joy my entire life!
