The first full week of my "Get the Kids Outdoors" challenge is over. For the most part I think I was pretty successful. We spent a good chunk of time playing outside all but one very hectic, mixed up day. That day they probably only got to run around for ten or fifteen minutes; the other days were closer to an hour and some (like last weekend) they were outside the majority of the day.
Something I noticed this week is that when Lucas has had enough of the outdoors, he just heads for the porch, says, "All done" and in he goes. I like knowing that he really got his fill of fresh air and was ready for a change. Nick, however, always has to be told that it's time to head inside.
