Quote for the Day
There is this to be said for walking: it is the one method of human locomotion by which a man or woman proceeds erect, upright, proud and independent, not squatting on the haunches like a frog. Little boys love machines. Grown-up men and women like to walk.
― Edward Abbey

Activity Suggestion: Everybody’s It Tag
Activity Description: Choose a wide open space with boundaries such as a gymnasium. Have everyone spread out around the gym. When the game starts, everyone has to try and attempt to tag each other, without being tagged themselves. If a person is tagged, they step outside the boundary, do 10 jumping jacks and then they can re-enter the game. The game should last long enough to get everyone warmed-up.
