We’ve been traveling alot lately. First we went to Eugene to visit family and escape the horrific smoke that filled our valley from all the wildfires. We returned to find the smoke was still bad, so we rented a house on the Oregon Coast with some friends for a week. Home for just a few days before we were off to New York to visit family and exhibit at the NY Now tradeshow in the city. We are again home for a week before the annual Mete Family adventure to Sunriver.
No matter where we are though, home or traveling, one thing always stands consistent. The harder we play before bed, the better the kids sleep. Tonight we went to the neighborhood school playground, and literally ran up and down the field (red light, green light) before moving on to the play-structure. We pack healthy snacks (sliced cucumber from the garden, ham, cashews, veggie pouches, and fruit leather) to help keep them fueled and in good spirits.
Nearly two hours of nonstop play before walking home. Kids are sound asleep in bed. I think I shall join them.
