#ETHANproject Summer Challenge 10 + Blogger Link-up

Welcome to our final week of the #ETHANproject!  We made so many memories with our children this summer, and it has been pretty awesome to be able to share many of them with you through our blog posts.

We sincerely appreciate the bloggers who purchased our kit and who stayed active in our Facebook group and on their blog throughout the entire challenge.  It was tough to stick it out to the end, but we are so glad we did!

We feel like we made so many friends this summer, and we have truly enjoyed sharing this experience with all of you. Here are last week’s features and an overview of our final challenge {it’s a tough one}!

 

This is where you can come each week to find inspiration and encouragement to help you be an "ETHAN Mom" this summer. Our 10-Week Summer Challenge will help you STOP and ENJOY your kids and create unique memories.

Enjoying the Drive with Your Spouse

Lines from the Vine

The most popular article from our #ETHANproject Link-up was Tracy at Lines from the Vine! She enjoyed a trip with her husband to Florida and didn’t let the rain ruin their fun! When you live in SD, you long to be at a real beach and her photos have almost convinced us to book an ocean getaway with our own husbands!

Your FINAL Challenge!Week 10 ChallengeSammi & Sarah’s Challenge Story

Welcome to our final “ENJOY the HERE and NOW” post of the summer.  The season has just flown by, but we are grateful we took time each week to complete the #ETHANproject challenges with our children.

Sammi and I love to cook for our families.  We enjoy getting our kids involved in the process but tend to hover and help them every step of the way. What would happen if we gave them a simple recipe, all of the ingredients, and free reign of the kitchen?!?

Of course, we knew the kids would have fun, but we didn’t realize how much fun it would be for them.  They definitely accomplished the “ENJOY the MESS” part of the challenge. There were spilled oats, milk on the floor, chocolate drippings on shirts, sticky fingers, and smiling faces.

I am not going to lie, there was a bit of cringing and I think Sammi had a more difficult time than me (ok, that’s a lie…just look at my face!). {Read Full Article}
