Pat is a Yankee city-girl who has been adopted by the sleepy, sunny south. Married for 30 years and the mother of 5, she woke up one day recently to discover she reached the stage of life where she is the “older woman” described in Titus 2:3-5. A coffee lover, the purchase of a coffee shop a few years ago was her personal foray into the small, family-owned business arena.Today, PatAndCandy.com is her outlet for packaging up and sharing the nuggets of wisdom God and life experiences have taught her.

Thought I’d give you a heads up on something today! Even though International Homeschool Spirit Week is ALL WEEK (yay for an excuse to celebrate!),  Women’s Health and Fitness Day is coming up in two days.

10 Fun Activities You Can do with Your Kids that Double as Exercise

Candy

Candy

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile. She’s been married to her best friend and the love of her life for almost 25 years and is navigating motherhood with her 4 children, aged 23, 19, 14, & 11. Homeschooling for over 18 years now, she is also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – she actually considers making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.

When you combine last week’s anniversary of the events on 9/11, the plethora of movie theatre shootings (of all places!), and all the war and violence and, well, horrors against humanity we’re reading and hearing about these days, there seems to be no shortage of tragic events in the news. OK, I know it’s nothing new, […]

Now, I realize that good health is more than just losing weight; I realize that there are lots of ways to have fun with your kids and “count it” as exercise; I realize that juices and smoothies are a great way to increase the fruit and vegetable intake of my family, but I also know that […]
