Running the Race

The adventures of an active family living in South Africa. Join us as we celebrate life with thankful hearts!

What's your favorite thing to do on family night?

We love taking the stroller and going for long walks in the neighbourhood, especially now that it's summer. We often end up at the local grocer and never leave without getting some dark chocolate - which is always finished by the time we get home!

What has surprised you most about motherhood?

What's your favorite game to play as a family?

Do you try to give back when you declutter? Please share your family traditions for benefitting others.


We've moved to new towns/neighborhoods five times in the past two years, so it's very important (and just much more practical!) to us to not gather up a bunch of stuff that we don't use. As a result, we try to de-clutter on a continual basis: Everything that comes into our home that will not be used, goes. Gifts, goody bags, clothes that don't fit anymore - you name it - if it's not used, it goes. We know about a couple of spots in our city where homeless families stay, so oftentimes we go and drop things off there. Or we just keep our ears and eyes open and give where-ever we see there is a need.
