A Saturday in February….Burrr

As the threat of “weather” is promised again today, I sit at my kitchen table on teleconference for my school law class. For the next 5 weeks I am taking a class on Saturdays to be eligible for another certification.  Being a multitasking mom is great, school, work, play… the juggling just adds to the adventure!

The kids are on a “mini-adventure” at the YMCA with dad, that goodness for them.  Have you been?  With 12 locations now in Maryland you should give it a try. http://ymaryland.org/  The rock wall and stay and play are a godsend in the winter months. They also let kids who are over eight years old work-out.  Some people like this, others don’t for obvious reasons at busy times.  One of the nice benefits of being a member are the discounts for camps, which there are tons of great options open to your kids throughout the state.  They also have a traditional camp which would be ideal for parents who work outside of the home. The traditional weekly camps has convenient hours and utilize the great amenities in each center, and have a different theme each week to keep your kiddo engaged. Best of all as a member you get a discount!

With more snow falling today we will be planning another visit to Kinder Park in Anne Arundel County soon for some more sledding.  This is a great year-round park with lots to see and do. http://www.kinderfarmpark.org/

Check out our visits below.  They added a neat little place for the goats which we found on a whim.  I was looking for the hours of the new visitor center and saw the goats new home, so we stopped for a little visit.  While we were there we noticed the little graveyard were many of the Kinder family is buried, which made for a good little history lesson for the kids.
