We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet. We are all human beings and we all have so much to teach one another. The Book of Cultures is available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter. It’s perfect for ages 3+, and all kids at heart.  @worldwidebuddies #bookofcultures  Pre-order your copy now: www.worldwidebuddies.com  #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer2020 #readingisfun #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #ilovereading #instaread #teachkindness #teachthemyoung #colorsplash #streetartist #streetart #wynwoodwalls #miamiart #kickstarter #diversity #diversityandinclusion #loveoneanother #inthistogether #oneworld #beautifulcolors

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts.

⁣
After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣
⁣
There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

Our 10 Favorite Outdoor Activities as a Family

What did you do for fun when you were a child?  I remember spending a lot of time outside, bouncing a ball against my grandparent’s garage door, riding my bike, swimming and playing with my neighborhood friends. Now, with three kids of my own, I realized that everything they were doing involved technology.  They constantly had a phone, a tablet or a laptop in front of their face, doing something meaningless like watching a youtube video or playing a game.  So, 2 weeks ago we made a change and we couldn’t be happier.

Trading in Online Time for Outdoor Time

We decided to limit their wi-fi access.  Instead of allowing them to use it whenever they wanted to, we cut them down to an hour a day.  It was the best decision we’ve ever made.  Not only has it stopped them from doing a lot of meaningless activities, but it’s also forced them to find other things to keep themselves entertained and it’s allowed us to spend more time as a family, doing fun things outdoors.

Our 10 Favorite Outdoor Activities as a Family

  1. Bike Riding: Bike riding can be fun and is great exercise! The girls put on their helmets (safety first) and ride around our neighborhood.
  2. Sports: My oldest wants to try out for her school volleyball team, so Dad has been teaching her everything he knows.  We’ve found that our younger girls love it too! They also love soccer.
  3. Gymnastics: Is there anything more fun than doing cartwheels on the grass? For my 8 year old, she can flip all day long if we let her.
  4. Rollerblading: While it’s still not one they’ve mastered, my 8 year old is determined to learn. I love that even when she falls, she picks herself right back up and keeps going.
  5. Walking: There is a beautiful little park down the road from our house and the girls love to walk around the lake, check out the ducks and perform the little exercises along the way.  It’s also a great place to relax and do a little yoga.
  6. Playground: Whether it’s our neighborhood playground or the larger playground down the road, give my girls a slide and some swings and they couldn’t be happier. They are having fun and don’t even realize that they are exercising.
  7. Swimming: Any time the girls can get in a pool, they jump at the chance.  My little mermaids would spend the whole day in the water if they could.
  8. Nature Walks: We have a local nature preserve and the girls love to look for animals and birds!  We’ve even spotted a few alligators along the way.
  9. Washing the Car:  The girls love to help Daddy wash the car whenever he allows them to.  They usually get more water on themselves than the car, but it’s all about how much fun they’re having anyway, right?! Throw in some bubbles and they are having the time of their lives.
  10. Sidewalk Chalk: Could possibly be the best thing invented… the girls get to draw, express themselves with their art and then the rain cleans it up for us.

When weather permits, I hope that you will spend more time outdoors with your family, finding fun activities that keep them moving more and worried less about technology. It’s fun, it’s a great bonding experience and best of all, it’s free!

    Technology addiction to children is very harmful.
    It’s important to get rid of this addiction and spend time doing outdoor activities.
    For staying physically fit, outdoor activities are very important.
    Your mentioned ideas are really great for outdoor activities.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for giving me ideas on how we could spend more time as a family doing outdoor activities. We have noticed that our youngest, Bran, had been spending most of his day watching cartoons on his iPad. Both my husband and I are hoping that we could introduce our kids to more physical activities rather than being present online, so we decided to take them to a recreation park this weekend. I think we’ll try rollerblading, and I hope that my kids will show the same determination that your kid did when she fell and picked herself right back up.

    My little brother loves to ride his scooter and play with his friends! It is so important to get some fresh air and exercise when the weather is not so bad! So outdoor activities are so important for kids.

    There can be as many different outdoor activities as possible. Outdoor sport should be must for kids in present generation as most of them are stick onto TV, video games or other indoor stuff.

    Outdoor activities have special importance in growing up years and they remain strong influence for all the future years.

    Great list! Very similar to what we would list for our family as well. Bike rides would be at the top of our list too. Though running in racing events would be swapped out for gymnastics and nature hikes would be a bit higher up for us.

    Ohhh these pictures made me miss summer! I’m in Canada now so there’s not much you *want* to do outside at this time lol. We usually try to get out daily anyway (apart from school recesses) to make sure I’m getting enough vitamin D and for some fresh air. Right about now it’s skating (when not so cold your feet are on fire in the first 10 mins) or sledding. It’ll be a difference of a 15 degree drop in my area, from one hour to the next -_-

    These are all great activities. We like to take our dogs on walks and to the dog parks and ride bikes and play tennis.

    These are great ways to get exercise. Funny, my kids actually do enjoy helping me wash the car.

    Both my kids are very much into swimming, so we often do things that involve swimming, whether we are at a water park or a pool.

    With our family, we shoot for some quality outdoor activities whenever we can. Participating in teaching a child what you know about a sport they’re wanting to try out for is a great way to get the whole family involved! We might have to add washing the car this summer to our outdoor fun!
