OUTDOOR WITH THE WOODALLS
To encourage other families to get outdoors and explore the world., to share our adventures and inspire others.
Sometimes right on your doorstep there are places to explore, not only is it beneficial for health and fitness but also you get to spend quality time as a family in natural surroundings away from electronics.
We are a family of 9 well 10 if you include my Mum as she lives with us.
Leanne, that's me, I am 40 years young, and James is my husband is 38.
We have 7 children age 24, 22, 17, 16, 12, 10 and 5 plus 2 Grandchildren.
5 years ago we started hiking, after our youngest Ariya was born, as we were so consumed with work, gadgets and electronics, we didn't know what a relaxing day was..... so I decided enough was enough we were started to explore our wonderful countryside and have never looked back.
The older 3 don't come hiking due to there own commitments, but our daughter Ellie is 16 and currently working towards her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award, so she often comes with us.
The youngest 3,....... Reo is 12 , Niyah is 10 and Ariya is 5 are home educated so we are lucky to go on adventures a few times per week.
Reo and Niyah have completed their Bronze and Silver outdoor navigation awards, they also enjoy Bouldering, football and Skiing every week ( before lockdown).
Ariya had just started Bouldering before Lock down but hopefully resumes in the Autumn.
