Inside or Outside?

Do your kids like being inside or outside more? 

I find that my 11, 9, and 7yr old are more home bodies.  They love their video games, movies, and just being home.  They will go outside sometimes with their friends but would rather be indoors.  My youngest (2) always wants to go go go and usually cries when its time to come inside.

 Wyatt's the same. He'd rather be inside. We have a great big Amish built swingset, and he's inside looking at it. He does go outside if it's to put out pretend fires with the garden hose though.

Now, if he has friends over, he'll play outside. I think he just gets bored on his own

She loves both.. Somedays she would prefer to stay inside all day, but then i try to get her out for a lil' bit. Its good to get some sun ever day :-)

If I let her watch tv/ play video games I dont think she would go outside as much.. But she can only have tv in the morning (or special times during the day) and video games after dinner time..

She has a swingset, sandbox, a small pool (i put the small pool under her slide- she loves it!) and then we have a big pool for when me/daddy want to go swimming with her. Oh & we have a Labrador who is a great playmate outside with her too.

It depends, my sons generally want to be outside and my girl wants to be inside....in the kitchen with me, hahaha! They all really enjoy being outside just in different ways. My boys are fantastic at entertaining themselves, my daughter usually requires more interaction. Once I get them busy thought, they're good- put kids outside with dirt & water= muddy entertained kids.

Ooooh....mine is OUTSIDE. The minute he can, he's out. He comes home at dark, haha! Even when we do school, he takes a break between subjects and goes outside for a 10 minute break...or we do school outside... Give my boy a skateboard or a ball or a bike....he's golden. Heck, he doesn't even need that. There's been MANY times he's brought home critters from the pond out back...crawdads, etc. even snakes or "hand caught" fish...

Yeah, getting him to stay inside is more of a challenge! LOL!

The girls LOVE to be outside. But they get hot easy so they don't last too long on hot days.
I seem to have better days when I can get outside as well. I can be having the worst day, step outside on the deck and it melts away.
