You Can Make Moving Fun

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
How are you doing with the Habit of the Month? Are you getting in some movement each day? This is an area that you can make fun for yourself and your kids!

My kids are so used to movement and playing hard. It is something that I have always encouraged. My two young adult children are also very active. It is a habit that has become a part of their daily routine.

As I am writing this newsletter, I am sitting ringside at the skating place. They are enjoying the $2 skate night, and I am enjoying watching them.

Yesterday, they went for a walk with me on a trail at a state park. They are accustomed to my being active as well. If I miss a day of running, they want to know what is going on with my running plan.

Over the past four years, each of my children has participated in one race. Four of them have done 5K’s, and the others have done one mile races. They have fun at these distances, and I pick races that have safe courses. I encourage them when they train for a race. Finishing is winning, even if you walk the whole thing.

We go bowling as a family, and it is a lot of fun for all of us. It gets us out and moving.

In the summer, we like to go swimming.

We like to play basketball in the yard, too. The boys frequently toss the football in the yard, too.

There are so many ways to be active and have fun as a family.

Make a list of fun, active things for your family to do. Pick one a week.
Each day, do one active thing at home, even if it is walking around the yard. Encourage your children to participate with you.

Your Zone Mission for today is to do a 27 Fling Boogie in the Kitchen.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and veggies.

Have a great day!
