"If getting our kids out into nature is a search for perfection, or is one more chore, then the belief
in perfection and the chore defeats the joy. It's a good thing to learn more about nature in order
to share this knowledge with children; it's even better if the adult and child learn about nature
together. And it's a lot more fun."
It's easy (for me) to get into the mindset of planning and checking things off the list, but this experience has to be leisurely and done with mutual enjoyment. I hope you find your spot on this earth to explore.
