Train with your brain
Smell that spring air? Feel that warm sun? Getting that urge to fire up your exercise again? Me too! Yup, it’s about that time when the weather transitions out of the doldrums of winter and sparks the desire to get outside and get active.
Parents can help make sports fun
Cheers ringing across the park signal spring sports have begun. As children play their favorite sports, parents can do a few things to help make the season shine.
Fuzzy slippers and flannel pants
I was talking with a friend last week about people wearing pajamas in public. Her high school actually banned jammie pants from their dress code. The closest our local high school came to that was banning fuzzy house slippers.
Shopping local and CSAs are like money in the bank
I often talk (maybe even rant a bit) about shopping local. It bears repeating because a few folks get confused by the term “local.” Some may think it means going to the nearby big box store on Michigan Road instead of traveling to the one in Carmel. Or eating at the fast food restaurant near Boone Village rather than the drive-through at Anson (or vice-versa depending on where you reside).
Keep kids safe while outdoors
Despite the ongoing cold, spring is coming. Soon, our children will break out the bikes, the basketball or the hiking shoes to spend more time outdoors. After a winter locked inside, parents need to refocus on outdoor safety and remind children of basic precautions.

Steered in the wrong direction
A Belgian woman made international news last week for driving 900 miles away from her home while trying to pick up a friend from the train station, which was only 38 miles away.
Play dates have many benefits
Play dates are a staple of childhood and a salvation for moms or dads seeking adult conversation.
It’s time to get rid of those holiday leftovers
Ahhh, that was fun. The holidays are over, they were great, and the New Year is here.
