Play outside!

The weather has been glorious! Nature is God’s canvas showcasing His creative powers.  I do love fall days!  They’re sunny days with blue, blue skies, cool nights and  warm enough days to avoid wearing a coat. The kids have been playing outside all-of-the-time. Roxaboxin has resurrected after a hiatus over the hot summer. There are usually between 6-8 kids in our woods (four of them are mine) raking, building, constructing, painting…. you get the idea….  the kind of childhood play that is out of fashion these days. Well, even with soccer season upon us, we squeeze in lots of outside play, believing that these times are the best times of childhood, and possibly more valuable than even school time (gasp).

You never can tell what you’ll find once you enter the wood….

And the local bow and arrow crafts person:  😉

What have you been doing these autumn days?
