Dust off your wheels ladies!

I started roller derby in September of 2012 and it has been an awesome ride.  Come for the exercise or the fun, either way I know you'll have a blast!

The Aquatic Center in Raton, NM is awesome!  The large kiddie pool complete with a train slide and easy entryway is featured on the right.  On the Left enjoy a fun water slide, water basketball, a whirlpool, and a rock climbing wall.  They are open 9:30-11:30 AM and 3:30-5:30 PM Monday-Friday.  Saturdays 1:00-6:00 PM, and Sunday 1:00-5:00 PM.  Check out their site or give them a call to confirm times at Raton Aquatic Center  A great place to have a birthday party but mostly just have fun any day of the week.

Kid Friendly Homes

"Mom, I need a drink of water"  repeated several times a day x # of children, doubled in summer.

One of the best things I ever did was put one of these things on my counter.

It's high enough that my youngest cannot use it (1 1/2) but perfect for the other two (3&5).  Place an absorbent rug or towel on floor for little spills.  

Next make cups accessible so they can do it on their own. so the next best thing I did was toss (literally) all the kid's plastic dishes and cups in a large bottom drawer where they can reach it.
Not only can they get thier own drinks of water, but help set the table and empty the dishwasher.  Oh it is pure bliss.
