Kristien and I keep joking that this summer is known as Brainwashing Henry into Loving Sports Summer <— thatâ€™s the official title. Honestly, itâ€™s not hard â€“ this kid has been kicking a ball since he was barely able to walk. And thanks to spectating a few races and doing a stroller-friendly 5K, heâ€™s super into the idea of racing. He keeps asking me when we can do a triathlon! Love it.
My husbandâ€™s two favorite hobbies are soccer (heâ€™s on an intramural team) and golf (he dreams of one day joining a club, but is currently content to play a round every now and then and drive balls on the weekend). A few months ago, Kristien started taking Henry to once-a-week soccer lessons. Now that the weather is nicer, weâ€™re trying to throw in some golf, too.
Driving balls is SUCH a fun family activity. It also teaches really good life skills, such as waiting turns, listening to instructions (although weâ€™re intentionally not heavy on instructing), and encouraging others.
Chowing down on the Sargento Balanced Breaks snacks again! My family is crazy obsessed with these on-the-go nut, cheese, and fruit snacks. I love the combo of the crunchy nuts and creamy natural cheese. Plus, itâ€™s the perfect balance of sweet + savory to keep our family snacking interesting! You can read my complete review of the individual-sized snack trays right here.
The Natural White Cheddar Cheese with sea-salted almonds and dried cranberries is Henryâ€™s favorite! A tasty and nutritious snack is a win for both him and me. This is way better than grabbing a bag of potato chips from the pro shop, right?
Iâ€™m looking forward to the days when Claire can play, too. But right now, sheâ€™s pretty content to watch her brother have fun.
What sporty activities do you like to do with your kids?
