10K Parent Training Plan and Another $50 Giveaway

Training for a race is not much different than walking the road of parenting.  To become a runner, to train for a race, requires planning, intentionality, priority setting, discipline, and perseverance.  You will shed blood, sweat, and tears.  It takes pushing through the cramps, wiping off the dirt, and continuing to put one foot in front of the other.  Even when all you want to do is throw in the towel.  Even when you wonder if each step is making a difference at all…….

    Favortie Fall Activity….family game of flag football, sitting by the firepit, and getting up early to drink coffee on the porch. There are so many favorite fall things it was hard to name just one.

    Oh how we LOVE Fall! Our favorites are sitting and watching the kids play as we make smores over the firepit, our yearly trip to the mountains that includes a trip to Tweetsie,and we can’t forget the fun ballgames! This year we are looking forward to going to a drive-in movie! We did this when I was younger and it was so much fun!! We have lots of places to use a 50 dollar gift card. 🙂

    ok- so # 5 was my favorite one…..j/k 🙂 that was great! i would do something super fun with the $50.00……….we would use it towards our “fall random acts of kindness activity.” i have been inspired on pinterest to do a fall project with my kids- mainly on saturdays when the kids and i have the day to ourselves. instead of our typical fall saturdays- we will find ways to do kind things for others. this would be the perfect start to our project!
    i think i have entered in all the ways allowed!

    Ha! Thought you would like that one 🙂 See, I told you that you are constantly inspiring me…even with untied laces. What a fantastic idea for a fall activity. I can’t wait to hear some of the things y’all do! What a blessing to your kids and the people you will bless!

    I didn’t know I could “like” you on Facebook, since I already like you so much in real life. But I just clicked the button. 🙂

    I would use a gift card to take the kids apple picking in the N Ga mountains. We went last year for the first time, and they absolutely loved spending the day in the orchard. I love being able to treat them to such simple pleasures (a la a Barefoot Walk, perhaps?)
