Boating fun at George L. Smith State Park

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 04/23/2013 - 1:23pm

This past weekend our family headed to George L. Smith State Park, near Metter, with hopes of canoeing in the lake there. The trouble with a family of five, with young kids, is that we don't exactly fit into canoes very well. The rental canoes at the park carry no more than two people each. So with three kids unable to handle a canoe and only two adults, we selected one canoe and one john boat, and off we went.

Getting ready for summer: considering summer camps

Our car racing results

by Traci Schumacher on Mon, 02/25/2013 - 11:32am

After all my worry about the Pinewood Derby, it turns out that my kids' cars all placed in the top 5 of their races. Crazy! Having hoped our cars would just run nicely, we were completely surprised by the winning results.

My Cub Scout son designed his unique car in the shape of a bridge or a hollowed out trapezoid. It was shorter than most cars so maybe the compact shape gave it more speed. I don't know. His car came in first in his den, and he will proceed to the next level race.

The value of the children's backyard project

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 02/19/2013 - 11:46am

“Go outside and play” has been a favorite suggestion of parents for ages. Kids get out in the fresh air, they burn off some energy, and parents get some peace. I love it that we have a fenced yard so I can know where my kids are, checking on them periodically through the windows. They can run around and act crazy, and I don't have to hear it all.

Ice skating adventure brings out the personalities

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 12/13/2012 - 11:41am

Our family went ice skating this week at the Civic Center's annual Skate Fest. We try to go every year, and little by little the kids are making progress in their skating skills. With three kids, I'm fascinated to see how their personality differences are highlighted by such a “risky” activity.

On Saturday evening my family and I went to the Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights ( on Hutchinson Island.

We chose to drive through, but there are also options to walk, ride a bike, or take a trolley ride or carriage ride through the lights also. Check the website for pricing.
