Can I just say that February’s “Acts of Kindness” Family Challenge was way more fun than January’s “No Eating Out” Challenge? Turns out it feels better to indulge and to give then to starve. Ha! We learned a few other things during our challenge as well.
Sometimes I have viewed the timing of Kindergarten as a pain in the butt. I can’t really get anything done in the morning before they go or in the afternoon before they get home.
