The family that kicks together

Sally - H and J kickThere are a lot of things that families can do together:  activities that stem from a common faith,  recreational activities, character building activities (With a homeschooling family together 24/7,  every day working together as a family is character building ;))! I’ve written about many aspects of our lives on my blog — mostly things that stem from my convictions about faith and family. Interestingly enough, two things that most of us are interested in have only been touched on here: nutrition and exercise!  If you follow us on social networking sites, you may have already had your fill of our thoughts on these two things. I’ll sum up the first one simply: eat real food! Seriously, we’ve changed some of our thoughts on nutrition over the years, often based on science and nutrition studies (and if you know that two of our girls are vegetarians, you know that we don’t all agree!). One thing we know for certain is this: if God made it, we are generally fans of eating it! That means that fruits and vegetables are definitely good picks! As for exercise: it’s a given — do it!

Various types of exercise have been studied in great depth and one thing is certain: the benefits of regular physical activity are vast! Those who exercise regularly experience energy boosts, mood balancing, disease prevention, weight control, and fun! Exercising regularly is absolutely, beyond a doubt, considered to be one key to good health (the others keys are healthy eating and a healthy outlook)! more »
