I don’t fish or hike or run. But I do like being outdoors. When it gets warm and my mom starts to plant things, I often help her. We plant flowers and plant vegetable seeds so we can grow things like our own tomatoes. This year I grew a pumpkin plant for the first time. I loved that. I was outside with it for a while every day, watering it, talking to it. Next year I am going to try to grow more pumpkin plants.
I also like being outdoors when we go to Gettysburg. You’d think the energy in Gettysburg wouldn’t be so pleasant because of the battle that happened, but Gettysburg actually has a nice energy to it. I feel so relaxed when I am there and just wish I could stay.
Sitting out on the battlefield or Sachs Bridge and just being in nature is so nice. It makes me feel good.
