First of all, I love anything that has the word free in it. I really do. This was something that my daughter looked forward to every summer. She and a friend would walk a couple of blocks down to Memorial Park and have an adventure.
So now that unofficially it is summer the kids are home a lot more. You want to get them out as much as possible. It's our goal to wear them out. Sneak in a bit of exercise. Oh, and a whole lot of fun.
This is the time of year when anything that you can do outside is better. I mean if it is not on a day that the wind is blowing over forty miles an hour that is. Getting out and getting some of that sunshine for your health is great.
You know when the school calendar comes out both kids and parents alike want to check it out. The kids are excited to check on which days they get out of school. You parents check because you have to decide on those off days what to do with them.
Here we are five days into the New Year and a lot of us are trying to stick to our New Years Resolutions. Whether you are looking to save money, get out of debt or be a little healthier now is the time to start.
One of the biggest struggles I had when my daughter was growing up was birthday parties. You know the struggle. Right? Figuring out where you can have a party. A fun activity as well and without totally breaking the bank.
You don't sit there and dream of all the holiday cooking and then dream of healthy options, do you? I mean we just know there will be nothing that has any redeeming qualities when it comes to healthy options on our tables.
