Happy President’s Day! Â The weather in Denver today was beautiful. Â A friend called and asked us to go to Westlands Park out south. Â If you are from the Denver area and have never been to Westlands I highly recommend it. Â It is a kid’s dream park with tree houses, slides, rock climbing, you name it – a perfect park for all ages.
Today, Alex was in business. Â Just look at how quickly the line grew!
Â I ran to my car and gave my kids a few dollars to tip Alex the Balloon Boy. Â Of course, they chose to have swords made. Â Couldn’t be something nice like a dog or a hat. Â Must have fighting weapons, argggg!
I have read countless lists and articles that point to the benefits of charity and community service in creating confident and empathetic children. Â My children are 8,6, and 3 and, while my husband and I give faithfully to several non-profits that are important to us, I often wonder how well I’m doing in helping my children to see the importance of helping others.
