I'm still thinking of Wednesdays as my check-in point in the week with the goals I have set for myself this year. So today's weigh in is related to my goal for more quality family time. We're always so busy with sports activities, school commitments, my hubby with his job....that I think it's important to plan and make effort for more good quality family time.
We recently took a little trip to Green Bay WI to visit some relatives and just spend some fun family time. It was so nice to be somewhere away for the weekend that wasn't for some kind of sports tourney where we were stuck to any kind of schedule. However, we did fit in a fun family hockey game to watch the local Green Bay Gambler's hockey team in a game. It was their "teddy bear toss" game in which after they scored their first goal everyone that brought one could throw a new teddy bear on to the ice. Workers (& even some hockey players) then picked them all up to donate to 21 local hospitals and shelters in the area. I think it was such a great idea and over 6,000 bears were collected for donation that night!! Here's a few photos:

can you see the teddy bears still flying over in the background?
it took probably a good 15 mins or so time out from the game to collect them all
