Messages that tell us that our children should be in a "structured" and "socialized" environment.
I came home yesterday from a refreshing nearly-three hour bout of time spent with this group and felt like I could take on the world. My kids were well exercised and had experience massive amounts of fresh air, free play and time spent connecting with other children. They were happy and worry-free; they seemed to have more child-like innocence after leaving than when we arrived.
I am truly thankful for this group and for all of the encouragement, inspiration and confirmation that it lends to our family. It just confirms every time that that this is the right place for our children to be spending the better part of their day- at home.
