Get Outside and Get Active

Did you know that today was National Love Our Children Day?  I didn't either, until just a bit ago. That being said, I thought it was great to share this email I received with you all.  (That and it is Spring Break here... Thought we could all use the push to get outside!)

WASHINGTON– Spring is here and it’s a great time for families with children to spend time outdoors and together.  The Episcopal Center for Children (ECC), a nonprofit organization providing mental health and special education services to children ages 5-14 in the greater Washington, DC area, offers tips to help families. Being active as a family can benefit everyone. Adults need at least two and a half hours a week of physical activity, and children need 60 minutes a day. “Several studies have shown that being outside and staying active improves health and well-being for adults and children,” said Dodd White, president and CEO of ECC. “For families supporting children with unique needs, doing activities together ou…

Living in Georgia, we don't really have different seasons.  That is my story and I am sticking to it!!! We have early summer, summer and Football.  Those are our seasons. Anyways, before I get a lecture on the different seasons, I wanted to share with you something fun.

Broxton's school recently had a "color run" where the kids got to get sprayed with colored powder. To say it was fun would be an understatement. It was so cute to see the kids expressions as they ran through it. (They had the option to run through the color, or to run beside it and not get any on them. You should have seen them as they approached the area!)  Once it was over, I brought water for each of them to drink.It wasn't that ho…

A wish has been wished... #ThousandStarHotel

Sometimes all you really need is right there with you, but you are too busy wanting bigger and better and you miss out on the things most important.  That is the message I took from the book, Thousand Star Hotel by The Okee Dokee Brothers.

We love working with Sterling Publishing, so when I had the chance to review Thousand Star Hotel by The Okee Dokee Brothers, I was so excited.  This is a hard cover book, with no book jacket.  Two BIG things I LOVE when looking at childrens books!  Another added bonus to this book?  It comes with a cd!!!!    This is a book about Mr. and Mrs. Muskrat (or you can call them "muskets if you are Broxton!)  They go fishing each day, catching just enough fish to make their dinner for that …

Having an 8 year old, we love going to Legoland Discovery Center in Atlanta.  He has a blast there and it is so fun watching his mind at work playing with all of those LEGO bricks!  He has said he really likes that they made the play area the Pirate Adventure, so when we heard they had a limited time SPACE MISSION Exhibit, I knew he would love it.  We planned our trip to go see it and I was surprised when he asked if they still had the Pirate play area.  No need to worry, it is there... doubt it is going anywhere for a good while.  The first thing we noticed?  They have added this play area to the first area you enter.  If you have been before, it is the waiting room before the doors open to enter and learn more about the making of those little bricks!  

He was excited to get to play instead of just stand there and wait like you had to in the past.
