Having a mom that is involved in a million things has its perks every now and then.

As Newaygo County Tourism Council President, I had the opportunity to share the new Newaygo County Exploring Challenge with my kids as soon as it was approved.

Over the past few months, my kids have been adventuring in Newaygo County.  As Summer is nearing the end, I wanted to check in with my 8 yr old, to see how she thinks it is going.  She’s completed just over 50 items so far!

Q:  Has the adventure challenge been fun so far?

A: Yes.


Q: What level are you trying to get to?

A: 100 things, I want to have the patch.

Q: What is the first thing you did on the challenge list?

A: Exploring the secret island in Hesperia.

Q: What has been your favorite thing to do so far?

A: Explore new playgrounds!

Q: Is there anything new you tried on the list, that you want to do again?

A: Go to the beach!

Q: What is the easiest thing you have done so far?

Q: What item is really hard that you don’t want to do or didn’t like doing?
