I grew up in a small town in South Africa, where we spent all our free time in the river, climbing hills, and digging in old gravel quarries, with just one rule - be home at 6pm. Practically all my childhood play memories are set out-of-doors with no parent in sight. My husband, my firstborn, and I relocated to Dallas 3 years ago, and now I'm mom to two active boys, Ludwig (4) and Ian (almost 2). They have endless fun constructing monster trucks and firefighter-helicopter-boats using legos, magnatiles and my kitchen tools, but are happiest when we're camping or simply digging in the back yard. I love to experience the calming, yet stimulating effects outside free play has on my children and myself and I am excited to help build great memories of playing in nature in my community.
