The Explorers were in the middle of snack time when we got the word, "Put your coats on and come outside for a few minutes. Brendan is here to tap the tree." We all stood up, put on our coats, and headed outside for a favorite combination Schoolmates/Bushy Hill Nature Center annual event: the tapping of the maple tree on our playground.

It took two days of asking and bargaining, but I got Aurora and Stephen to take a hike with me. Actually, for months I have "led by example." I walk or hike whenever possible. Stephen and Aurora know my beliefs about exercise and being in nature, yet they fight my attempts to get them outside. When motivating children, "lead by example" gets you only so far. After that it's bargain,…Continue
