Free Range Kids

Alice, a good friend of mine, recently introduced me to Lenore Skenazy's book and blog:

I've decided that our family would benefit greatly if our kids had more of the benefits of being Free Range Kids.

So yesterday, when I realized that I had a busy day ahead of me and little time to do something fun with my boys, I made this card for them from Skenazy's book:

And I sent them off on their bikes with a basketball and a deadline of when to come home.

This is how they looked when they returned home (right on time, I might add):

I love my Free Range Kids!!!
