Keep in mind that here in Florida, our "outdoor season" is limited . . . three months from now, we won't want to be outside much unless it involves a pool. But these days, it's way too gorgeous to be cooped up inside, and merely opening the windows just isn't enough. Instead, we've been finding ways to take our schoolwork outside.
From something as simple to reading on the back patio to a nature walk at the park to collect rocks and twigs (bonus if I'm ambitious enough to use them in an art project), we've really been enjoying our time outside. Several times, we've enjoyed lunch at one of our favorite restaurants (Dandelion Communitea Cafe) followed by an hour outside in their garden doing schoolwork. Next up is Noah's idea of headed up to the "beach" area in our neighborhood to do some landscape sketching.
Is the weather beautiful where you are, too? What's your favorite way to "take it outside"???
