interrupting skirt week

I need a little break from talking about skirts today. There are a couple of new discoveries I've been dying to share today:

  1. This awesome website, Nature Rocks,  is all about encouraging discovery and play in nature.  You plug in an age, amount of time you'll be in nature, and you're location (i.e. backyard, community...), and it gives you a list of ideas.
  2. Have you heard of Girls on the Run?  It is a great program for pre-teen girls to encourage self esteem through helping them learn to run and finally, train for a 5k run.  Here is their mission:

"Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning programs for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts."

If there isn't a program in your area, you can start it up!  I love this program... take a look around their website.

So there you have it, a couple of very cool things and some random Thursday pictures.
