Wordless Wednesday – Appreciating Snow

I listened to a live town hall on the phone with EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy this evening.  Gina asked people to please take their children and grandchildren outside to play. She said that children need to learn to appreciate and connect with nature and this happens from going outside. This fit so well with my plan to do a Wordless Wednesday on my children out playing in the snow.  We talked about why they should be glad it’s cold and snowing in New England in January, and they had a blast!
