Wondering how I resolved my interest in creating unstructured outdoor play for my kids this summer? Here is the update:
It's official, we're heading to Orient, New York, population 709 (2000 census), for some mom-grown, homespun, wetlands education, wildfowl watching, surf skimming, journaling, and (fingers crossed) not-so-much cabin-fevering fun!
I found a sweet cottage that was just slightly more money per week than I would have spent on camps, plus. Now, I am left to plan how to structure our time (so that we don't spend every second of the day together), and I can remain on the grid partially to tend to my projects.
As always, if you have ideas, suggestions, send them along.
Stop back tomorrow for a guest post by Margaret Leeson, on summer's subtle parenting gifts.
