Go out and play! #Challenge

Morning mamas! I have a question for ya. When was the last time you went outside to play with your kiddos? I don't think I liked that answer!

I make it a point to take my girls to the park at least once a week, but usually it's a few times a week. And I don't just sit on the sidelines like all the other moms, I get up and join them in the fun! And I break out a sweat. We all need to stay active, why not do it while we have fun too. Today, since it's been super hot here in Texas, we went out and played with the water hose, our grass got wattered too and we took the neighbors dog a bath (because we got a free dog shampoo sample). The girls had so much fun. I was also able to get some laundry done and it was dry by the time we got done (and bathed, inside).

Here's a picture from Saturday evening... daddy was with us, so he was able to watch the girls play a bit while I walk/jogged two miles! Yeah, mom!

And on Friday, the girls were invited to join in the end of the summer party at the Pharr Aquatic Center (for reading over 20 books at the Summer Reading Program! It was our first time there and we hope to go back in a few weeks for Yvette's birthday!

So, come on, I challenge you and your family to get up and play before summer is gone! Please share a comment below how you had fun outside with your kids!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
