Yesterday the boys and I took a trip to their school to release "Bob" the box turtle into a better environment. (We found him crossing the street in downtown Jeffersonville.)
If you feel cramped up in the man-made world and need a fix for your "Nature Deficit Disorder" you're welcome to take a few minutes to come along on our little trip! You'll get to meet Bob as well as another of his reptilian friends on the creek bank.
By the way, be sure to check out Nathaniel's squat and see if you can still do that! If not…make it a goal!
One more surefire way to cure Nature Deficit Disorder is to have a little (or a large) garden!
The episode ends with a tour of the raised bed fall garden we take care of at their school.
No major exercise or posture lessons today (except for the squat and the barefooting) but the simple act of connecting with the power of Nature can be incredibly healing as well.
How do YOU connect with Nature? Leave me a comment below
Have an AWESOME nature filled day!
P.S. I want to give a big shout out to Community Montessori in New Albany and to the Montessori method in general.
I'll post a great video below on the blog that explains the method in just 5 minutes.
