When People Of All Ages Work Together Something Magical Happens- Seriously, It Does!

OK~There's something to be said about organizations that involve people of all ages. It is true that here in North Iowa we have a wonderful group of bloggers that support each other day in and day out. I often joke that, "We get along better than the ladies in the church kitchen." Honestly, we do!



The North Iowa Bloggers are men and women in their 20's, 30's ,40's, 50's, and 60's. I'm sure hoping we find a blogger in their 70's to join us soon, as that would give us another age group. We all have our own writing styles, voices, yet we all love to write and share through social media. We work on projects together and we also each do our "own" thing. I truly believe that when a mix of people are tossed together with a common interest something special blooms.

Just a couple nights ago I was at the local gun club with our 20 year old son and my husband. They were shooting clay targets on their team for the season. I looked around and you know what? The cool thing about the gun club was the fact that there were youth, parents, grandparents, which meant people of all ages all around. If you have never set food at a gun club, you would not understand how genuine and friendly the people are that frequent the club.

I found myself comparing the gun club to our North Iowa Bloggers group. Both groups of people included people of all ages and people were having fun and getting along. Maybe it's just an Iowa thing, but you know what? I think it's pretty cool that I could find two groups of people right here in North Iowa making a difference in the lives of many. Our son has met many people, that are many years older than him, at the gun club and he calls them friends. They lend an ear when needed and they are there to support each other.

I am sure there are many other groups in North Iowa and all around the country that offer friendships and a support system just like my family and I have found in North Iowa. If you are not finding something like this where you call home. I challenge you to be that person- start a club that involves something you are passionate about and take it and run with it. I know you will be pleasantly surprised at the friendships and blessings you will receive along the way. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

Tips On Keeping Your Tween (Kids) Busy This Summer

OK~ What's a parent to do? The end of the school year is upon us. I am seeing that many parents are really challenged with what to do with their tweens over the summer. They are too old for daycare, yet they really don't need a babysitter 24/7, so what is a parent to do?

I did a little digging around on this topic today and you know what the best solution I could come up with was? Your local YMCA and Parks and Recreation Departments are a fantastic place for tweens to spend summer. Depending on your particular area, some offer programs geared toward tweens; but most offer programs for younger kids and allow tweens to volunteer. Let's face it, tweens can be excellent role models for 5 and 6 year olds. These are the "big" kids!

Our boys each spent 2-3 weeks at different types of summer camps throughout the years. Our oldest son was a volunteer at church camp for three summers- ages 12, 13 and 14. This kept him busy volunteering for one week out of the summer. The other two he spent attending church camp and another week was spent at Boy Scout Camp. And then he also had Music Camp. There are camps available for tweens all around, just ask.

I often hear, "I can' afford that." My response, "Ask about scholarships. Many organizations have scholarships available for those that can't afford to pay." I can recall a conversation with someone a few years ago in regards to church camp, and we had two scholarships for campers. We could not find two kids to fill the spots. My message here is..... ASK!!!!! There are often people willing to assist financially in keeping our youth busy over the summer.

I will also add, if you can volunteer as a parent to accompany your kids on any camping programs they attend, do it. I do not regret one moment of all of those nights camping under the stars in those Cub/Boy Scout tents with our boys. The years flew by- many fond memories and smiles!



In Iowa our kids have a lot of opportunity to help out in the agriculture industry. Ask around, a farmer often has "odd" jobs that are perfect for tweens. Hey, I spent many hours picking up rocks and I can honestly say that it did not hurt me. I got lucky, as I never dropped a big one on my toes.

The next time you hear someone complain about what their tweens, or kids in general will be doing this summer, encourage them to reach out to local community organizations. There are scholarships, opportunities to volunteer and just plain old GOOD experiences awaiting our kids in our local communities. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
