Today Chris said to me, "You know, I think I stopped the habit of getting outside every day when recess ended in 6th grade." Wow, how true and how sad that is. Nature has a lot to teach and we have a lot to learn. So, let's re-institute recess and vow to get outside every day. This may just be the overly simple solution to a lot of life's problems. I know it has been for me in 2012.
