Celebrate Life!

Sometimes I get caught up in the day to day drudgery of life. Sometimes I get caught up in RAD. During those times I like to have some celebrations that bring the joy back to every day living. We need to laugh and have fun with our kids. If our child with RAD can't handle it, so be it, but the others can have fun and should. Here are some things to help with that.

Fall just cries out for fun! Visit a local pumpkin patch. A hay ride and picking out your own pumpkin are so much fun.

Make a pumpkin desert! Here are some recipes.

Family Fun

Parent's Magazine

There are calendars that make every day a holiday. Check out this site.

Brownie Locks & the 3 Bears

Rake leaves together into a big pile and jump in them. Go for a nature walk with a camera. I did this last year with Taz and we got some great shots. Celebrate life! There is so much about which to be happy!!!

You are so right!

For a while we just stopped going and doing because of the child who couldn't handle it. I'm happy to report we are back in the swing of things!

We did go to the apple orchard this weekend and pick out pumpkins from a pumpkin patch. Everyone had a good time except my RADish . . . and I did not let her attitude spoil our day! The visit there and her older sister being home from college caused a bit of a fuss on Monday at school, so hard to tell what will set them off. But a great post, yes, we need to celebrate life!
