The local Friends of the Fells group runs hikes for curious kids along with the DCR (Department of Conservation and Recreation) in our local woods. When Eoin was a baby they only had Babes in the Woods, for parents carrying their babies (I did it a lot with Conor). Since Conor was a terrible toddler walker, I never got to do those hikes with Eoin. Until now! They have introduced a slow-paced ramble for kids who like to stop every two feet and explore the woods!
As you can imagine, this program suits nature- and dirt-loving Eoin to a tee. We don’t get around to it every Tuesday, but it is a wonderful resource for us.
