Fun, free and frugal events for families in Grand Rapids September 1-7
Events, Families

I am guessing that since school is finally starting in Grand Rapids, most of you don’t need suggestions for how to keep busy this week; but I’m going to give you one anyway. 

It’s what I do.

I have spent the last couple of days trying to nail down our fall schedule.  Tae Kwon Do has once again made the cut, however, Boy Scouts and Gymnastics will have to wait.  This is Maybelle’s first year of having class every day and A.P.’s first year of having class all day.  Throw in the first year of Faith Formation at church on Wednesday nights, and my kids are going to be pooped!  Plus, when you live in an awesome place like Grand Rapids, you don’t need a million classes to keep the kids busy.  I love fall and I can’t wait for it this year! More to come on fall fun soon…

Even with school starting, you’ll still need to make sure your kids get some exercise.  Did you sign your kids up for the Grand Rapids Marathon yet? A great way to log some miles on Labor Day is at the Labor Day Bridge Walk.  Follow it up with the West Michigan Labor Fest, which, according to the website, includes a “blow up bouncy house” for kids. 

Looking for more? Check out “What’s Happening In Grand Rapids“, and then have a great week!  Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a great picnic tote and blanket but hurry – I’m picking the winner on Saturday!
