Happy Memorial Day everyone! I am at home today with a sick kiddo, my oldest, but there has been a little quiet time this afternoon to hop online and post my mixed tape.
::Over the weekend, our family went on a nine mile bike ride together: Seth on his mountain bike, pulling our two girls (who are two and three years old) in a trailer, plus Dryden (our seven-year-old) and I riding our own bikes. I’d say we were able to apply some of the things that this video talks about. I wouldn’t agree 100% with everything said but I think this is a helpful video to watch and a good thing to keep in mind when thinking about overall wellness! There is a lot to be said about getting active while being surrounded by God’s creation.
::Over the Ocean by Taro Gomi is a picture book I enjoyed with the kids this past week. I appreciate that the story causes the reader to look far beyond where they are and what they are doing in the moment.
::I enjoyed hearing two new songs from a musician whose voice I already love. Check out Wilder Woods.
::And, as a follow-up to my nod to Aldi on last week’s mixed tape, I wanted to mention that tonight, I shopped at a major grocery chain instead of Aldi because Aldi closed for the Memorial Day holiday early. I was disgruntled for just a couple minutes but then I celebrated for several reasons. One is that how smart is it that a grocery store will close a little early for a holiday and take good care of their employees? Secondly, being forced to shop a nearby local grocery chain as an alternative only confirmed to me how much I like Aldi–its prices are low, it is not complicated to shop the store, and it assumes that the shoppers are responsible, smart consumers.
