With the kids heading back to school and the schedules reappearing, it is also a great time for a family fitness challenge. As each task is completed, cross it off the calendar. We put ours on the fridge and everyone gets his or her own pen colour. Make sure you decide on a reward if you complete the whole challenge!  (My kids have chosen a trip to Happy Cow.)
