As parents, we know it’s good for our kids spend time outside, but often it’s not on the top of the priority list and consequently may not happen as often as it should. What if I told you it has the potential to transform your family life and your homeschooling? Actually make it easier?
Today I am chatting with Ginny Yurich, founder of 1,000 hours outside! She shares some incredible benefits to being outside, but more than anything she affirms what every mom knows…our kids NEED to be outside. This isn’t something we add to our checklist, but something that is essential for children’s healthy development.
Ginny has a BS in Mathematics and a Master Degree in Education and was an educator for several years. Most importantly, she is now a mom of 5 children and shares from a wealth of knowledge and experience.

John Taylor Gatto on raising a genius: “Front load a huge amount of experiences including ‘dangerous’ ones”!
To find places to spend time outdoors: check city and county websites, search for parks, etc on Google Maps
