What's the big deal about Young Living

A Day in the Life

Yesterday, I showed you our children's book collection, which I am very thankful for. While I think a love of reading is the key to almost all forms of intelligence, I want to be sure to state that I firmly believe that outside time is just as important to an ever expanding mind as is time spent in books.

And I don't necessarily mean outside time spent in organized sports. I mean walking down the half mile gravel driveway to get the mail.

Or exploring the acres of woods behind the house.

(By the way, NEVER believe a chunky, barefoot ballerina if she tells you, "I won't make you carry me, Mama. I will walk the whole way." Lies. All lies.)

Digging in the dirt,

...climbing trees and swinging, listening to and identifying the sound of a woodpecker, are all important parts of a child's day.

  1. Yes! I agree. We are outside people around here. I miss our old house in the country simply for the distance my boys could run and run and run.

  2. I love the chunky ballerina . I believe any little one that says they will walk its all lies I tell ya. We walk everyday to get the boys from school and we always leave early he has to explore and touch everything.
    I love these day they are so precious to see it through their eyes. What a wonderful afternoon.

  3. Oh my mom, nice tree swing shot of the kid! Hope you didn’t fall getting off that limb!!!

  4. What a cute chunky ballerina!
