Rachel of Kids Activities Blog lists 50+ Fun Fall “Bucket List” activities that the entire family will love.  Some simple ideas:

  • Nature Scavenger Hunt – Go on an outdoor scavenger hunt for kids with this printable guide. Even younger kids can play along because it is all done in pictures.
  • Make a pumpkin pie with your kids. Have extra filling? Add it to a smoothie with some yogurt.

Help We Learned About

Are you concerned about your alcohol intake? When you see other moms or images in the media about enjoying “Mommy wine culture,” it can be confusing to know if you are indulging in a way that’s negatively impacting your life. Maybe you feel that you’re drinking too much or too often. Perhaps it’s a habit you’d like to better control. Maybe a member of your family suffers from alcoholism, or you are beginning to see some early warning flags in your own behavior. It’s critical to keep in mind that everyone in need has access to resources and support.
