The Morning Mile

My girls school participates in a program called the "Morning Mile" - it is a program designed to get kids moving.  With childhood obesity being at record highs in our country it is a great program. Teachers also find that the kids are better able to focus in class. It is a program that all kids can participate in no matter what their fitness level is. 

The morning mile program kicked off this week and Rose and Roni were eager to participate. If you participate in the program you don't have to stay in class and do the classroom morning activities.  I was a little surprised that they were sent to the track without an adult - they buddied up and went - but was thrilled that they were eager to participate.  Rose had recently been having some anxiety about school, but getting a chance to start the day with a run seems to help.  

In other news the puppies are doing great.
