A post about nature deficit disorder at Ramblingwoods.com made me think about ways I could help my little buddy, granddaughter Magnolia, to connect with nature. A couple weeks ago, while we were at Lake Michigan for a family reunion, Magnolia and I would walk around the yard to see what we could find. One day, we discovered a toad living in the pool cover enclosure. We named him Mr. Toad. Anytime we were outside after that, we would go out to gently knock on the enclosure and visit Mr. Toad.
