You made it! Here it is... the blog where you get to sit back and laugh at - or be completely horrified by - life with 5 kids, 2 parents, some frogs, a cat & a rabbit (and those are just the creatures we know about).


Tuesday's Tip (#16)

Here's a tip for you:

Take a walk.

Sometimes I get so caught up in doing fun activities with the kids, that I forget the simplicity of taking a walk. Today we walked in the arboretum. It was fun, free, full of nature and, best of all, it wore them out.

So, when the kids are off the wall and you're at wit's end, just take a walk. It'll work wonders on all of you!

Walks are the BEST! We live a short distance from a state park where the trees are so dense that even when it's raining (all the time in Seattle!) I can take my kiddos there for a walk where they can stop to inspect every stick, leaf, mud puddle, slug, you name it...they see along the way.

It's really the best (and simplest) way to entertain them!
