Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 28-What worked today

Day 28
It is here the last few days of the challenge I may have found what I need to do. The back story is, it can be difficult for me to encourage Bobby to go outdoors everyday, he likes to stay in. So Sunday morning, when Cathy texted to see what time we were walking, she added that she would be bringing her son. I asked Bobby if he would like to join us, which he said no. Then just before we left, I told him, if he came, he could stay in for the rest of the day, and no one would bug him to go outside. He jumped at that chance, and out we went, off to the Humber. Realizing I may have stumbled onto a 'thing', this morning I was feeling ansy, and said to Bobby, I needed to go outdoors, I thought I would go longboarding for a while, and he said he wanted to come with. Off we went to Bloor street, Bobby on his scooter, I on my longboard. We got a Booster Juice (scary berry) and came home. AND, when we got home he said to me, "remember when we first started homeschooling we would have recess and go around the block, I would ride my ripstick, you would ride your longboard......that was so fun"
And that's what worked for today. 
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
