Inspiration Monday: Get thee outdoors!

Now that it is officially spring, the outdoors is calling. But sadly, a lot of kids won't be taking full advantage of the warming weather—studies show that children today spend 50 percent less time outside than they did just 20 years ago. Not only that, but according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, kids are spending an average of 6.5 hours a day with electronic media.

We hope to change that. So do the folks over at, who have created a video that is sure to make you want to ditch your computer for a breath of fresh air. You'll also no doubt feel some pangs of nostalgia for the days when rolling down a grassy hill was the epitome of fun. Enjoy!
