My oldest children have headed off to Grand Valley State University to prepare for this weekend's robotics competition. The temperature was hovering around 70 degrees and the sun was shinning, so we decided to load up the SUV with all the kids and spend some time outside. After dropping the the high school aged children off for their journey, we drove to a nearby park and took a beautiful walk through the woods. Almost all the snow is melted and soon the grass will begin to turn green. The kids had a blast playing on a wooden boardwalk. The boardwalk was built over a swampy area. With every step, water shot up between the boards, soaking everyone's feet.
We had a great time.
Of course, there was a letterbox to be found on our journey, but the main reason for the walk was to get outside. At least that's my story and I'm sticking with it!
