I love to get me some action! Albeit, when I do, I’m usually by myself. And it takes about an hour and five minutes and I’m so sweaty when I’m done DW won’t touch me. Kids need action, too. It’s recommended that they get an hours worth of action every day. I’m speaking, of course, about exercise. I suppose I should say I love to be active. Whether it’s hiking, kayaking, geocaching, swimming, running, etc…
Thus far our two rug rats enjoy being active as well. Mind you, it’s disguised as running, jumping and climbing at the park or shovelling the mountains of snow in the back yard and driveway (April 1st and the snow is still deep enough to bury picnic tables completely and that’s no joke!). We’re still having snowball fights. Just walking through the yard in knee deep snow is enough to raise our heart rates.
One day the snow will melt. I’m guessing August. We’ll be out jumping on the trampoline, playing Frisbee golf, going swimming and all the other fun outside stuff. But for now, I’ll let them walk/run on the treadmill. We did yoga yesterday, too. But that’s another letter for another day (April 29th, to be exact).
Another way I keep them active is to send them on wild goose chases up and down two flights of stairs. I’ll be on the main floor and send them to the basement to get something for me only to remember that it’s upstairs, not down. I also send them all over the house if they’re looking for something and ask me where it is.

A is also for attention. Kids need A LOT of attention. I had to pause my writing of this no less than three times.
