Time is flying by, and I’m still in awe of these babies. 7 and 4 are not quite baby ages, but to me, I still see the same sweet faces that I held in my arms not so long ago. We go/play/explore/dig in outside as often as possible, as I feel the need to reinforce the beautiful truth that we are, in fact, animals cohabiting in this ecosystem we call Earth.
This should be a natural, and yet so many humans are disconnected from our connection to nature, making it that much more important to prioritize being outside.
Generally exclusive with my children, every moment an opportunity to listen, teach, and learn, I am also learning to extend this connectivity. Existing between buildings and vehicles, staring at various screens of colorful lights and endless distractions- this existence is not only limited, but it is not sustainable.
The more time each of us spends outdoors, the more we appreciate our biological inheritance as unique creations working synergistically with all other forms of life.
How humbling and yet enabling!!
Be good to each other, and yourselves, my friends.

As though abandoning responsibility and riding the motorcycle on a gorgeous Tuesday afternoon wasn’t enough, my incredible husband indulged me by taking advantage of an empty playground at Cheatham Dam yesterday. #ilovemyhusband#indianscout#swingset#playground#cheathamdam
Perfect Sunday☝🏻We planned to take them to the bicentennial trail today but was disappointed when it was closed for a marathon! So on our way home we passed Cheatham Dam. It was perfect! There was hardly anyone there, and the boat dock made a perfect place for them to swim! We even found a football washed up, which I know was planted right there for us to see😇Made a perfect toy for them to play with. Such a blessed day! #cheatham#cheathamdam#dog#waterdogs#memoo#brooklymarie#sundayfunday#funday#mootriever
