Melt my Heart ♥ Eco-Kids Tuesday!

I have been striving to get outside every day.
No matter how cold it is out.

We have actually been lucky and, though the nights are freezing temps,
the days have been mostly tolerable, and some even rather warm.

We have great adventures while out for our walks

On this, one of our warmer days (hence no gloves),
we spent a great deal of time cracking ice in one way or another.  

Stomping, throwing, sliding across, falling.
Cheering, shrieking, laughing.

And sometimes a few tears followed by helping, hugging, and hand holding.
All true ice breakers.

There are many different kinds of warmth.

The most obvious that have to do with temperature.

And the less obvious, but just as important.

A child needs both in order to grow properly. 

My little icebreakers are quite heartwarming.

Now, onto the Eco-Kids Tuesday Link-Up!  Welcome!!  Eco-Kids Tuesday is growing by leaps and bounds!!  Last week we had 63 great posts shared with us at Eco-Kids Tuesday! I enjoyed each and every one of them.  It is getting harder and harder each week to pick just a few features! 
Here are three of my favorites:

  9. thanks for the invite back from Country Kids. I have linked up now. Loving your ice breakers, it looks like you have had it properly cold this past week!

  10. We tried geocaching once without a GPS, and we did find the treasure, but it was pretty difficult. I am sure once my kids are a little older they will enjoy it. Thanks for hosting; sorry I had to dig into the archives this week!

  12. You are a brave momma to go out in the cold everyday. I love winter months but I love them because I get to stay in and be cozy warm in my home.

Happy Blogging!
