    Is it too late for me to join the Outdoor Challenge? I live in the Middle East, and currently the temperatures highs outside are about 45C/110F. My daughter and I are both on summer break (I am a teacher) and I need to push myself to get us outside. Getting outside to play really would be a challenge for us as we live in the middle of an absolute concrete jungle, butdoing this would also help me to start thinking about ideas for outdoor play for my little ones when school starts again mid September.

    I love your blog BTW although makes me very nostalgic for ‘gardens’.

    I just had to come back to ask for more details about your Outdoor Challenge. I’d love to participate but I’m not so sure I’ll be able to make it every single week. Maybe more details will clarify my doubts.
    Peace and Blessings

    Hello there! Your blog is so beautiful. I really love all the nature pictures. You know, I never grew up as being a nature lover. Not that I remember. This is something I’ve recently discovered about me. I feel such excitement when I’m surrounded by nature. AND, I’d love to have my kids feel the same way. Since I consider myself a newbie in this subject, where do I start from, what recommendations do you have??? I basically live near the city, don’t have a big backyard and live in a country where people constantly live in a rush.
    Hope to hear from you soon! If its not too much trouble please reply to my email.
    Peace and blessings!

    Great challenge, I am always looking for inspiring new ideas to encourage us outdoors, especially in winter here in Tasmania, Australia, it is cold at the moment, with frosts on the ground, and the sun not warming up until lunch time, but still we get outside everyday unless we aren’t well.

    I would love to join in on this. It is actually something I have been striving to do on my own, now it will be more fun with a group! 😉 I live in Phoenix so I have to start getting creative to not kill us off with the heat! 😉 Thanks for the awesome idea and challenge!

    I’m glad you’re extending this! I missed this week, but I’d like to take part in posting on Mondays. Thank you so much for doing this, I’ve been so inspired to do new things with my son outdoors that I’ve seen on your and other bloggers linked posts!

    Thank you for extending the outdoor adventure. This is a great concept, it really makes one develop an awareness of the importance of nature.
