You need stability to create motion!

Ok today’s the day.

Wrote 3/4 of one paper last night… putting that one aside now as it is not due till Tuesday.


Today however.. today is the day of nature.

How does nature and the outdoors effect the development of a child?

Here’s what I got so far… pretty much just a plan.. but hey it’s a good start!

  • Fine motor skills
  • Nutrition & healthy eating habits

  • Patience, compassion, gentleness calmness
  • Routine
