With Labor Day this weekend, most people are mourning the loss of summer and likely not anxiously anticipating the cold weather and elements the winter will bring. One important thing you can teach kids this weekend is to discuss living in the moment and really taking in experiences so you can appreciate them. It is so easy to always look ahead, but everyone needs a little reminder at times to stop and enjoy the moment they are experiencing.
This weekend, make sure and plan some Labor Day fun for kids, whether it be out at the pool for one last weekend, or a picnic in the park! Let them enjoy the nice weather and time spent with family and friends.
