We are headed back to WI today. I am not looking forward to the day of travel BUT getting home will be very nice. Except for the weather. I know I am headed home to LOTS of snow, frozen temperatures and the end of winter not even remotely on the horizon. All those thoughts are leading me to all of you!
The January Monthly Challenge (just five days later than normal!) is all about winter. How do you enjoy winter where you live? What do you do with your kids to get out in the cold? What is your kid's favorite snow activity? Have you tried a new winter sport lately? I am looking for new ideas, advice, stories, PICTURES and anything else that can get me excited and keep me motivated to get my girls outside this month.
As always these monthly challenges are meant to stretch your comfort zone so PLEASE try something new with your kiddos and let me know how it goes! Get an idea from someone else, test it out and report back. Let's all help to keep each other active and outside this month. If you live in a place that is warm right now feel free to join in but we all might hate you! Just kidding!
So, how do you participate? As always I am all about sharing so if you leave me a comment or email me with an idea or a link to a post I will probably share it with everyone else in a post. And just like last month you can join the conversation on BlogFrog or use the twitter hashtag #winterfun to see what people are talking about on twitter.
Let's share ideas and keep everybody motivated to get outside this month and for the rest of winter! Can't wait to see what ideas you all have.
The Nitty Gritty!
In just a few hours we start the very long travel day. So not excited about it. Especially because Avery turns ONE today! What a way for her to spend her birthday right? I am doing a personal birthday post to her over at the Enlund blog. Feel free to jump over and read about my little girl.
