Roaring and Gnashing! Long Live Maurice Sendak!

screaming.

smiling.

laughing.

sighing.

having "nakie" time.

crying.

finding magic in a special place.

feeling sad.

finding a way to express themselves.

Do you like your new hat Daddy?

Our oldest came in the kitchen while I was fixing dinner last night (turkey burgers) and saw me sporting the new CRPA (Cowpasture River Preservation Association) hat that I got in the mail today.  She giggled and said, “Do you like your new hat, Daddy?”

 Yes, indeed I do.  These busy days have me pining over the leisure hours and days we spent…

As the summer winds down for me…

School starts up again for me tomorrow.  Wow!  I really can’t believe that.

With that said, it explains why I have been trying desparately to check too many things off of a day’s list lately.  A hike here, a visit there, a book read and a house cleaned.

While visiting the library, I stumbled upon a sweet treat: Pioneer Naturalists: The Discovery and Naming of North American Plants and…

Advice FOR Natural Family Leaders BY Natural Family Leaders

In January of 2008, Ashley and I started Kids In the Valley, Adventuring!, a free nature club for families in Roanoke, Virginia (www.kidsadventuring.org). Since then, we have connected with wonderfully creative people around the United States and beyond who have started their own nature clubs. To increase our conversations and to document them to help other families, we created a facebook page for leaders as well as the NING…

Paging Robert Michael Pyle, this one's for you.

“When people connect with nature, it happens somewhere. Almost everyone who cares deeply about the outdoors can identify a particular place where contact occurred. This may have been a wilderness, a national park, or a stretch of unbounded countryside, but more often the place that makes a difference is unspectacular: a vacant lot, a scruffy patch of woods, a weedy field, a stream, a green ravine…

I wish I could have been there! Ironically, with all the work around publicity for my book, I haven't been getting out enough lately! A book talk sounds great and yes, feel free to use the cover image. Do you need me to send it to you?

How did the presentation go? I'd love to hear all about it!

Hi again Chip! I went to hear Richard Louv on Friday, giving a talk in Los Altos, CA, and after he mentioned your name, it clicked that I'd read all about you, and your family groups. And seen the clip from the Today Show. So I'm delighted to meet you!
At 9:51am on September 24, 2009, Judy Molland said…
Thank you, Chip! I'm very excited about this book, so thrilled that you'll be using it. Let me know if you need anything else from me, and do let me know how it goes!
