Throwing Stones

Is there anything that better than being outside with your child and watching them explore? For us, we are lucky to have mild weather year round, which enables the outdoors to be a massive part of our daily life.

While there isn’t much of a recipe here, we like the timeless tradition of throwing stones…literally, not figuratively! Since we have boys with a lot of energy, this can be a physical burn as well as getting out any negative emotions for the day.

Regardless of the day, he’s had at “school” or home, I ask him if he has had any tough times during the day. If he says yes, I suggest he says what it is out loud, then throw a stone to make it go away. This is not only a fun way to spend an evening, but it’s also a great way to shake off the day. Admittley, it’s great for the moms too!
