We all know families have more time together, and what could be better than a challenging activity in the envigorating spring weather?
Christopher came up with a new activity for his kids. The goal was to reach a prize on the back fence without touching the grass. They had to work together to come up with what they wanted to use.
Ruthanne, Lydia, Joshua, and Daniel set in motion, with a little help from their Auntie Sarah (Anna Marie’s sister) and cheering on from the rest of us. All in all, it took about a half-hour from the time the first item was placed off the deck until the fence was reached.
What can you think of that would be a creative challenge for your kids?
Dilly Bars = the reward (don’t worry: they weren’t melting in the box but waiting in the freezer!)
“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but
one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And
every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all
things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown;
but we an incorruptible.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-25
