It happens again and again, so I don’t know why it still surprises us – but for some reason it does. It is remarkable how much happier and calm our 3yr old is when she is playing outside.
We started last weekend out on the open water, Viv sitting cross legged at the front of my paddle board as we navigated the inner harbor. Her excitement was contagious. We found snails, picked up crabs, (they walk sideways!), found clay (she pronounces it “play”), and generally had a grand adventure.
Next up: hold a mini olympics, or perhaps make a nature walk bracelet?
