The reading program along with crafting ($24 investment) is been fantastic! Our kids are actually reading this summer and that makes all of us proud. Its fun to see them play and get fully concentrated on the task at hand.
Special thanks to my sister Norma for her support and involvement with @itanhteam reading program. #impressive pic.twitter.com/ushPsUQPtx

Thousands of little beads are keeping our youngsters somewhat distracted and focus for a good amount of time.

Gecko and the penguin have been getting all of the attention.
It's been five weeks since we started our 2nd annual Run With US! With slight changes in the curriculum the main concept remains intact; to run, set a goal, and keep healty,
We have our daily, walk, jog or bike warm up and cool down to the elementary school and back. That alone is 2km per day. We meet three times a week for 1hour and 30 minutes. So far, kids have gone through drills, intervals, and speed. Every day there is something new we all add to it. Example: Last Thursday we all utilize our bikes to do hurdle drills. A few kids were upset because they felt they were not able to do much and we ran out of time. In a way I liked seeing them express their anger as it shows running is growing on them.
I encourage you to follow me on Twitter and get the day to day action..

Finally, I have the unofficial ride the bike next to me.. The way it works, kids are encourage to join me during an easy run. A win win situation as I get to teach them about training and places you can run in town and In return I get some company and encouragement during an easy run. Yes, fortunately I have been able to run a bit more each week. Today, my long run was 10 easy miles.
