Each week we receive a pass for each child for free skating every day of the week. We just print our coupons and take them on the days we can go. The games are free and you just pay for shoe rental. It makes it pretty cheap/ affordable.

It’s blueberry season! Whip up some of your favorite recipes this month!
I’m not sure about you but my kids seriously love their blueberries. In Michigan we are lucky enough to live near the blueberry capitol of the country (pretty much) and blueberries just came into season this past week. I always stock up and freeze them by the cup-full for smoothies all year long. We also love to bake homemade blue berry muffins (i just use a recipe from my handy Betty Crocker cook book. You can make them last longer by individually wrapping them in cling wrap, and then storing them in the freezer in a zip top bag. Just remove the number you need, and let them thaw with the cling wrap on. They taste “just baked”fresh!
There you go- a few activities to stay busy this month!
