{into nature}

{into nature} is a weekly Monday post inspiring the exploration of nature. It is a grassroots effort to combat the nature deficit disorder in our current generations. Please join me in this movement back into nature by sharing your own nature inspiration, whether shared through photographs, words, poetry…. leave a link here in the day's comments for all to enjoy.


"For children, nature comes in many forms. A newborn calf; a pet that lives and dies; a worn path through the woods; a fort nested in stinging nettles; a damp, mysterious edge of a vacant lot- whatever shape nature takes, it offers each child an older, larger world… nature does not steal time; it amplifies it.” -Richard Louv

oh vermont, you have please our hearts once again.  our week long camping trip on the lake in northeast vermont was a blast as usual.  owning a small piece of lakefront property for a week each year just confirms that we belong on the water... one day :)

there was lots of hiking, swimming (our boys are regular ol' fish!), kayaking, fishing, stick throwing into the lake for duke, digging for gold (aka digging in the mud), game playing, marshmallow roasting, all around camping in the woods on a lake goodness!  i'll let the pictures speak the rest.  you can view more from our trip over at flickr.

What a great camping trip...have you ever noticed how difficult paddling can be with those helpers in front? Or maybe, I just need more practice?!?!
