It was a beautiful day today. It’s a given on sunny days that my kids and I will be outside whenever possible for as long as possible. Today we met friends at a local park that happens to have a boardwalk through some beautiful wetlands. The land stretches for acres and there is an abundance of wildlife. My kids and I always discuss the purpose and importance of a wetland to the area and the kids list all the animals they can think of that live there. We talk about school, and friends, and the important things in the life of a 6 and 7-year old. It made for a very satisfying afternoon.
