Keep Active in the Summer

It is summer and the kids are out of school.  We need to build activity into their days or it is too easy to settle in to a lazy summer and watch too much TV and play more video games than is good for them.

Then it turned into a good time for us to talk about the trouble that she is having with friends at school, and finally meshed into us both wanting to be able to jog farther. We are slowly increasing the distance that we jog, and then we walk the rest of the {Read More}
