Exploring nature on the way to school

My son (8) and I like to walk/bike together. We set ourselves goals to beat and make a game of it. Master 8 likes to bike to school by himself or with friends but after school he will wait for dad’s train and when it goes past he races off on his bike to meet him and they bike/walk home together from the station. I like that when we do bike/walk together, we often stop and admire the small things. He will notice an insect or we’ll enjoy a sunrise and we talk and teach each other new things all the time. My advice would be - don’t be in a hurry. Leave with plenty of time to be able to chat, connect and enjoy your surroundings. Keep your phone in your pocket and look up
