We have taken the no TV rule from October one step further for November and declared an “outside challenge”. The rules are simple, as a family we have to get outside once a day together for a month… We have been hiking, playing soccer/basketball and even out to feed the ducks at a nearby park.
This Thanksgiving weekend we will go on our first camping adventure since our big trip! It feels good getting outside, even if only for a little bit. (John, Max and I are lucky enough to get at least 1 – 1.5 hours a day outside while we are at the school, and Ethan shoots hoops for hours before dark. It is our girl who needs a push to get out and explore!)
We have missed a few days where we were all together doing something outside. However, it is super easy to pick back up the next day. We have enjoyed this challenge so much that we are striving to continue this challenge as long as we can!
