Wordless Wednesday: A unique playground

We pass this playground every day after school, and it’s pretty much a requirement for us to stop and play. Today Kellen was riding his bike on the path and not playing with us, but here’s some pictures of Avery and Griffin at the playground.   The really cool thing about this playground, aside from the super soft and flexible tiles on the ground, is the workout equipment that they provided on the side.

The “Aww” Factor

#RallyforRecess with Danimals

It’s been awhile since I was in public school but I still remember watching the minutes tick away on the clock while I waited for the recess bell. It wasn’t because I didn’t like school, because I was a good student and enjoyed learning, but I also loved the chance to be free of the books and the desk and just hang out with my friends. We may have been talking about our favourite television show that we watched the night before, or gossiping about something that happened with our siblings, or enjoying a quick game of tag…but it...

Get great lunch ideas and win a Panini Grill #DempstersLunch

Making healthy school lunches that my kids will eat can be a real challenge. My guys can be a little picky too, which adds to the challenge. There are a few things that I feel are important when planning their lunches: Choosing healthy food Providing a variety of choices Ensuring it is garbage free Making sure it is kept at the right temperature It is also important to let your child be involved in choosing what will be in his or her lunch. I find that the more involved they are, the less food comes home at the end...
