It’s not just day 1 of “distance learning,” but it’s also #nationalcrayonday so we thought it would be fun to make some art with @crayola crayons. ⁣
⁣
This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

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. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

#ad This is a time of uncertainty throughout the world. As a self-employed family, we are having to make important decisions, to make sure that we are saving and spending our money wisely.⁣
⁣
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! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣
⁣
There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

Today starts the first week of “homeschool”. ⁣
⁣
Can I be totally honest? The idea of having to homeschool my kids terrifies me. Mostly because I don’t know if I can give them everything that they get at school. We rely so much on our teachers because they are AMAZING at what they do. We are going to try to make sure we make enough time in each day for every subject. I also want to make sure we incorporate some fun arts and crafts projects and outdoor time. ⁣
⁣
We are grateful for the schools providing a list of online resources. I can only hope that we can keep them on the right track. ⁣

What is your school situation like now that so many are closing?⁣

Walking Our Way to a Healthier Relationship

This post is sponsored by Garmin, but all opinions are my own.

When my husband and I decided to get fit and healthy this year, we knew that we needed each other for moral support if we were really going to succeed.  While we have successfully begun to change our diet, we weren’t exercising the way we knew we needed to. We tried promising each other that we would walk every morning or night, but we just got busy with work and life and found ourselves remembering at the end of the day, too tired to do anything about it.  We knew we needed something to hold us accountable and we knew that the Garmin vívoactive® 3 smart watch was the perfect tool for us. What we didn’t know was that it would make our relationship with each other and our kids, that much better.

Our girls had received their vivofit jr. 2 trackers from Garmin in December of last year. They still wear them daily and still find themselves competing to see who can get the highest activity each day. They are being challenged to stay active, in a fun, kid-friendly way.

When our smart watches arrived, they were out of the box within minutes.  My husband and I are both huge technology lovers and a new gadget is something we can’t wait to explore, set up and learn.  I love that Garmin sent us matching trackers, his in black and mine in white.  Although they are identical, we were able to set them up differently, working best for each of us.  We were able to personalize our watches, choosing from thousands of free watch faces, apps and widgets from their Connect IQ™  store.

There are so many things that this smart watch can do. We can turn on our lights at home and find out when the rain will start so we can plan our days and activities. There are so many options, we haven’t even gotten to check them all out yet, but I love that we can learn something new every day!

Like any good piece of technology, our Garmin vívoactive® 3 connects to an app on our phone.  The app gives us an additional resource to track our day, week and month.  Garmin Connect is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete by joining challenges, encourage each other’s successes and even share their triumphs via social media. Best of all, Garmin Connect is free! But it’s not connecting with strangers that we found the most surprising, it was the stronger connection we have now with each other and our kids.

We love opening up our app, at the end of a long day and checking out and comparing our stats.  It’s become a little competition between the both of us, just as it is for our daughters.  We are challenging each other to meet our individual goals and when we are a little behind on activity, we make it a point to take a walk around our community or a neighborhood park (usually with all three kids).   It’s become a family bonding experience that we wouldn’t trade for anything. It gives us time away from the television and our screens to connect, laugh and be together.

Though we limit our screen time and put away our phones when we are connecting as a family, we can still stay connected with our vívoactive 3 smartwatch so we don’t miss anything important. Since they are paired with our smartphones, we can receive and even respond to text messages and see social media updates, emails and more right on our wrist!

Not only is it safe for swimming and showering, its Garmin Chroma Display™ is easy to read — even in direct sunlight — and housed under extra-durable glass. It also features the Side Swipe™ interface, which makes for quick scrolling and swift navigation of menus and widgets.

Check out this video which highlights many of it’s features:

Who knew that a smart watch could bring us together and help us walk our way to a healthier lifestyle and a healthier relationship?  Thank you, Garmin! Do you use a smart watch? Let us know by commenting below!

    Getting fit together definitely helps you stay on track. I don’t know if I want a smart watch to follow me around and remind me of things I’m not doing, lol.

    Walking or any similar activity will really help you lost weight especially when you’re following a diet that works for you. I think those smart watches are perfect for activities like this! It’s so cool to see you bonding over getting fit!

    Those look like really cool fitness trackers/timepieces! I would want to have one, but just wanted to know if it is user-friendly? I get technologically challenged at times that is why I stick to my old, trusted pedometer.

    My husband and I need to do something like this. I have been exercising but it would be a lot easier for me to do it if my husband was doing it also. What a great idea. Maybe I can convince him to do it if I give him a “toy” like this.

    I have a SmartWatch and I love it. It tracks so many things and makes me wonder what I ever did before it. Congratulations to you and your husband on your partnership path to health.

    I’ll have to look into getting one of these for my husband. I have a Jawbone, and happen to love it, but this would be totally something he would enjoy.

    This look really awesome. I’ve heard a lot about this SmartWatch but I didn’t know that it was so cool as I know. I would love to get the White with Stainless Hardware. That looks really perfect on me.

  • Amber Myers

    This sounds like a great watch! I do wear a fitness tracker and I strive to get 10,000 steps a day. Walking is important! I generally jog daily so I can get those steps!

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    I want to start walking again when the milder weather arrives but I hate to do it alone. If I do I think I will be tracking my activity.

  • Robin Rue

    Ok so now I want to get myself and my hubby each one of these! What a great way to keep track of how we are doing.

    Love to walk especially since we live in the country, so pretty and peaceful. There are so many different ways to track steps, breathing, heart rate and many other things.
