Take time to smell the roses.




On Friday I took a small group of children for a walk to Broad Green Gardens. Lately I have been thinking about ways I can make it possible for children to be able to explore the neighborhood outside the kindergarten gates so today i took the opportunity and off we went. WOW, what a stunning place we live in. As soon as we go there the children were eager to run off and explore. Of course we took time to smell the roses, gaze up into tall tall trees, count fish in the pond,hug a tree, look a t things through a magnifying glass and even watch a local man pluck walnuts from the trees.All this and only ten minutes walk from kindergarten.Makes me so appreciative of the wonderful world we have right outside our gate.
