Step Into Wonderland


For many, getting up the courage to go out in the snow is a challenge. It’s cold, wet, and slick, so there is extra effort to go out safely. We must bundle up, get out our boots and gloves, but few words can describe the feeling of walking through a winter wonderland. 

Here in the midwest we only get snow for just a short piece of the year, and while it comes with it’s challenges, we encourage you and your children to take a moment, and enjoy this beautiful season.

There are few seasons so perfect for making such magical childhood memories. Stepping outside your door to stand in a snowfall, see children building snowmen, and throwing snowballs. It can be tempting to just let children sit inside, but nothing compares to the joyful memories children gain from time in the snow. 

So grab a sled, prepare the coco, find joy in snow-laced boots and happy smiles. Take a moment to let yourself enjoy the season for all it is, see your children grow strong and happy beneath a winter sky. 

Find joy in Wonderland.

Take A Breath



Throughout the last year it seems we have had to repeat that to ourselves over and over again. It feels like we have been cooped up so long inside and behind masks– necessary precautions, but stifling nonetheless. 

Fresh air is hugely important to our physical and mental health, doubly so for our children. Fresh air helps strengthen the immune system, helping prevent colds and headaches. Exposure to fresh air and sunlight helps our minds destress and reset. For children being outside also helps strengthen their self-discipline and ability to concentrate. 

That is why we are inviting you to take a moment to step out into nature, to take a moment to breathe. Away from people, we can safely slip our masks down and take in the cool wilderness around us. We can let our children run free, strengthening their bodies and minds, their lungs filled with fresh clean air.

Go ahead, take a moment. 

Just breathe.
