  • I've done martial arts all my life just about, I now teach classes and my son takes my class.

  • My girl takes karate. The kids go outside to play whenever the weather is nice. That seems to work for us.

  • We go on family bike rides - we all have bikes and we live 2 miles from a city greenway, the kids are finally old enough to ride up there on their own and go for a little while (except my youngest who sits in a trailer behind my husband's bike). Also, my 8 and 10 year old are on a basketball team, so we'll go outside quite a bit and play HORSE to practice their shooting. And we have a large trampoline in the backyard, which is always fun!

  • I've always enrolled my son in different sports.He's been in football,soccer,martial arts,basketball and this summer he is signed up for kid pitch baseball.He loves it and I enjoy going to his games and rooting him on and practicing at home. My 1 year old..well her main excersise is running around the house like a little maniac tornado and I chase her around, LOL.
