Be Out There: The Challenge Begins

I'm reading: Be Out There: The Challenge BeginsTweet this!

I accepted my role as one of the National Wildlife Foundation's Founding Mothers in part because I know when I focus on a topic on my blog, it makes a difference in my real life. Committing to a week of outdoor play with (or at least alongside) my kids means we'll Be Out There.

There was at least one day last week, where if I was being graded on my work-life balance, I'd have earned a big fat F. I want to take my kids to the park and do something more than sit in the car taking business calls like I did that day.

I also signed on because I was eager to blog alongside some pretty fabulous peeps. We're all sharing the joys--and challenges-- of getting outdoors for an hour a day for a full week.

The challenge is open to all. If you join in, leave a comment on my earlier post for a chance to win a year's subscription to one of the National Wildlife Federation's entertaining and educational magazines.

Here's a list of the fabulous Founding Mother's (thanks to Rachel)
