It’s amazing the difference a little fresh air can make.
It may still be quite chilly, but the sun is shining!
So out we go, eager to take advantage of the opportunity to be outside.
And not just outside, stepping out of the house, but outside, surrounded by nature.
We find ourselves drawn to the outdoors, or at least I do.
So I try to foster this love of the outdoors in my children.
We make our way down the street, past the park (after a very long stop here, of course) and to the forest preserve.
Here everyone is free.
The kids are free to explore, and of course, make quite a mess in the process.
Pepe can run free, exploring all the new scents and territory to mark.
And me, I just enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy the freedom. And I enjoy sharing this with my children.
