The title of this post applies equally to getting through Halloween and to the Turn Back the Clock family run that ended the weekend. Even without the trick-or-treating we had lots of activities and treats. My preschooler had a harvest party and my son was dismissed early as it was the end of conference week. We spend Friday and Saturday with family and friends and were glad to be able to enjoy Sunday with just our family unit.
We walked up to the local park to participate in the run. The kids had a good time and we enjoyed the lovely fall walk on the way there and back.
We spend the rest of the afternoon playing games and enjoying each others company. Scheduling downtime is as important for family health as physical fitness. Don’t we always know when the kids have had a little too much fun?
