State Park Family Fun

It’s spring and the state parks are a great place to have some family fun. If you have a state park near and visit it, you would find there are fewer people in the play areas. This is due to the $20 to $60 dollar a year few with some state parks. I find it worth every penny to have less craziness to deal with.

Keep the family moving and have fun!

Dads

As the kids get older and things change. It becomes very obvious how important being a dad is. I mess up everyday, but I try to learn from my mistakes and move forward. I don’t want to be my kids best friend, I want to be a mentor they can learn from and show by example. If you are am “I need more” parent your kids will see that and become like that. I’m trying to become a less is more parent. Saving is better than spending. Get a smaller house with better things inside. Find fun free things to do around your area. Become a 1 TV house. Grow a family garden. Plant a fruit tree. Just be a TRUE family unit.

Schools

Kids are heading back to school over the next month. Use this school year to see what your kids school needs and think of ways to help. Education is a family event. If your school rating is below average, try and get active and help improve the school. Teachers are in the class to guide kids and parents should be helping their kids learn what is being taught. If you don’t like what the school is teaching make it a point to be at school meetings and state why you think its wrong and provide a better solution. Become a true family unit and get involved. Start parent groups and brain-storm on ways to improve the schools in your area.

What a Great Weekend

I hope everyone was blessed with a great weekend. Keep your family strong and talk, play board and card games or just listen to some great music. Turn off the TV and live life!
