Five Ways To Have Fun With Your Kids On A Snow Day.

Snow days can be great for slowing our fast paced lives down.

That's one reason why we appreciate winter so much here in Montana.

After you've had fun playing in the snow consider these five fun activities to do indoors with your children.




1. Grab a warm drink and read a book together.
2. Game night! Break out all your board games and have fun. Our kids are adults and we still have game nights. You are never to old to play games.
3. Make a fort out of kitchen chairs and sheets or break out the tent and set it up in the biggest room in the house. Add pillows, blankets, books, some toys and a flashlight.
4. Gather up the art supplies and encourage your child's creativity to flow.
5. Storytelling time. Find a spoon, talking stick or a special item. Pass it around. The child holding the stick/special item gets to tell their story. When they are done it's passed to the next child or you the adult to tell your story. Don't be surprised if your child asks the deep questions during story telling time.

Identity - Growing Up With Labels



IdentityDefinition on Dictionary.com
The Sense of Self, Providing Sameness and Continuity In Personality

We've all seen the studies and heard the horrible stories, the ones where someone's life long career suddenly ends and within a few days they've dropped dead or committed suicide.

I don't bring this up to have a somber conversation. I tell you this to have a discussion and shed some light on a topic I don't feel receives enough attention.

The way we humans are wrapped up in our identities. The multiple roles we play as humans in a life time.

These roles are important and help shape our outer form, but when we tie everything we are into these roles and they suddenly change, the walls can come crashing down. Sometimes the change is planned and sometimes it's unexpected.

Let me give you an example. Jerry lives next door, he's been a logger for 25 years. Due to change in supply and demand for wood Jerry no longer can rely on his profession to pay the bills. He feels like it is the end of the world. He's a master at what he does. He's put his blood, sweat and tears into his profession. Over time it has became his identity. Everyone around his little town knows him and how he's won the local lumberjack contest several years in a row.

What If?



What if everyone had their basic needs met?
  • Shelter
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Health Care
  • Survival needs cared for
I often wonder what would the world look like if these needs where met?

Would creativity shine through?
Would people's pain bodies become healed?
Would people look forward to going to their job of choice, not because they had to but because they wanted to?
Would more entrepreneurs show up?
Would crime go down?
Would people have more tolerance for other people's beliefs?
Would there be less of a need to control others?
Would people be happier?

I invite you to ponder these questions with me.

10 Tips for Managing and Organizing your Family!


1) Prepare a weekly healthy menu ahead of time. Once a week go grocery shopping for the ingredients you'll need to be able to stick to your menu. Make sure to include healthy low sugar breakfast items to start your kids off with brain fuel. Remember to include healthy after school snacks and items for extra curricular events during the week. On a budget? Check the local sale adds before heading out to shop. On the day of your extra after school activities stock a small ice chest full of healthy snacks or a prepared meal to have on hand to avoid the temptation of the fast food urge. Get the kids involved in learning about making healthy choices and planning out the weeks menu and getting them involved in cooking the meals.

(One of my fondest memories as a little girl was when my mom and grandma were in the kitchen cooking dinner. I was around three so to keep me occupied, I had my own cook station. A tray with a bowl and stirring utensils and extra food scraps, egg shells, vegetable scraps and such to mix away and cook my imaginary meal.) Always wash children's hands before and after handling food.


2) When your young children arrive home from school. Go through their backpacks looking for notes from the teacher, homework, or flyers for other schools events. Update your calendar right away with any new events and talk about your child's day. Make sure to ask your older children how their day was and what go over their assignments they are working on.
