One day I'll be able to spend a weekend there...

Whoo-hoo!  The weekend is in sight, and the cooler weather is here.  It is glorious!  So here are two ideas if you need help finding things to do this weekend…

The Sound of Music movie poster - image via WikipediaIf you have some indoors time this weekend, why not watch your favorite movie from childhood?  I recently shared “The Sound of Music” with my son for the first time, and we had such a good time watching it together.  Some of my favorite childhood memories came flooding back, and the familiarity of the lines and song lyrics made for relaxing viewing.  Need some movie suggestions?  Check out this list of the Top 50 Best “Family” Movies from IMDb.

Play fun kids sports!Support local youth and Upward sports events – attend a ball game this weekend.  Check with your local recreation department for game schedules.  Locally, we have football, fall baseball/softball, and cheering seasons in full swing.  In other areas of the country, lacrosse and soccer are going strong.  Visit the Upward website to find sporting events near you.

Whatever you and your friends and family do together this weekend, I hope and pray that you will have fun and stay safe.  Remember to thank God for the wonderful weather, and the time to spend with those you love.  Be Blessed!
