Family Activities

Time is something that we can never get back.  I say this because it is very hard for me to believe that I am the parent of two teenagers.  It seems like only yesterday I was bringing them home from the hospital!  However my kids made something so clear to me recently. Their best memories and favorite things to talk about are the times we spent together not the “things” they have received.  Playing the mud, fishing, going for walks, looking for arrowheads, carving jack-o-lanterns, and soaking them with the waterhose are the things they were laughing about!

Here are some “local” ideas that are either free or very low cost you can do with your kiddos.  Your time is the best gift you can give them!
