Summer Time Fun
What a great time of year to get outside and enjoy our beautiful world. I can remember leaving my house as a youngster and playing in the neighborhood all day long and only going home for lunch and dinner. It was good to be social, explore nature, and soak up the sunshine. Push your child to go outside and just play. You might have to go with them the first few times, but pretty soon they will get it and be able to play alone some. Make mud pies, dig in the dirt, play hide-n-seek, have water play, or just lie down on the grass and guess what animal the clouds above are forming.
I know safety has to be priority, but don't miss the opportunity to connect with nature and the world outside. Whether it is visiting every park in Nashville or just enjoying your own backyard, make this summer a special one filled with adventure. Enjoy.
