Fresh Air

Finally! We have been able to go outside and play. We have been taking advantage of the lovely weather this week and going outside to play whenever we can. Some of our younger toddlers have not had the chance to explore our big playground until now. Sarah and I have stayed very close to them as they play to help them understand what is safe to do on the playground and what is not safe. Not only are they playing with the equipment but they are also exploring the natural things that are outside- touching, smelling, and observing the flowers that are coming up and also the trees and grass and other natural things that are available.
