Jennie Garth is currently helping to promote the Green Works Walk To School Challenge and opened up with People about her full and hectic life as an actress and mom of three girls: Luca, 13, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 4. A little about the initiative:
This Green Works Walk to School Challenge enables kids and families to experience shared walks to school, but they can also sign up for the actual challenge, which enables them to win grants for their schools — and those are desperately needed. So this is a great opportunity, a win-win situation all around.
I’ve just moved to a place near our school, so I can walk my girls, and it’s been great. If you’re able to walk your kids, or even drive a few blocks away and park, it’s fun! It gets people out and active. I think it’s really important for our children.
Her youngest just started preschool and, like most moms, Jennie is reveling in a few hours of peace and quiet:
She goes to pre-school three days a week, and she just loves it. And I love having the empty house! I love when she’s at school, and it helps that I know how much she loves it, and how happy she is. I get a lot accomplished at home when there’s no one there.
She shares a look at their morning routines:
It’s crazy! I try to keep it quiet, but the girls are starting to get old enough where they handle some things themselves. So I focus on breakfast and lunch while they get ready. But it’s not too, too bad.
You can check out Jennie’s entire interview here. She talks more about the ways she and husband Peter Facinelli stay connected when he’s traveling for work. I love that they keep life as “regular” as possible for their girls.
