Summer is a fun time for kids. School is out, the days are longer and they get more time with their friends. It can also be a time for boredom to set in as their routine is turned upside down. One way many of us parents cope with this is by sending our kids to summer camp. It’s a great way to keep them entertained, give them new experiences, and help them to learn new things.
Today’s post – 5 Ways to Break the Routine, is sponsored by NESCAFÉ® ClásicoTM, but my love for their Make the Moments Happen movement is all my own!
Minutes turn into hours, turn into days, turn into years and before we know it life is moving along so fast we forgot to make the moments happen that matter most. In the everyday grind and hustle and bustle of life we tend to forget to slow down, break the routine and do something new and different.
What better time to head to the beach than summer? Of course, here in Miami we have beach weather pretty much all year round, but it isn’t until around this time that the beaches everywhere begin to open for the season. This is the time when the best beaches are open, the best weather is available and the best swimsuit deals are going on. If you’re going to spend time at the beach this summer, you need to have a beach bag that you can pack for easy carrying of all the beach essentials.
Get yourself outdoors! National Get Outdoors Day is Saturday, June 11, 2016 so take some time to get to know the beauty of the nature that surrounds you.
National Get Outdoors Day
As kids it was easy for us to spend time outdoors – to go barefoot in the grass, play in the mud, explore the wilderness. As we get older we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things we once loved.
Yesterday news broke of an incident that occurred at the Cincinnati Zoo that involved a Gorilla being put down after a child fell into the enclosure. The world is furious with the mother of the child, as well as the zoo, for the death of the 17-year-old 400lb Gorilla named Harambe. But who are we to judge the Cincinnati Zoo mother?
Harambe, a Western Lowland Gorilla, is a critically endangered species, so I totally get the uproar.
