I am a Mom to 5 wonderful boys! I started in the early childhood education field in 1996. I believe that children are like sponges, eager to soak in as much learning as they can! They learn through the process of playful exploration and what better place to explore and experience new things than the green space of the outdoors! I have talked to my boys about nature since they were born, carrying them as babies outside and pointing out the beautiful sights and sounds of nature and I always remind them to "look up!" The day and night sky is so beautiful and sometimes we forget to see it. Now, as my boys are growing, they point out to me the beautiful sights and sounds of nature and they remind me to "look up!"
