Today I did a 44 that was all about the core (and a nice stretch for my back!!).  I used my stability ball – Stability Balland did a roll-over.  

Start with the ball between your feet and your legs in the air.

Slowly, without using your hands to push off the floor, lift your hips and roll back.


Then, bring your legs back to the start position in a controlled manner – don’t just let them flop back down.  Great for the whole core – back included!

And, because it makes me happy, I did Turbo Fire – Fire 45!  There is no way to be in a bad mood working out with Chalean.  The music is great and her energy is contagious!!!

Last night we went to Hunter’s Parent/Teacher Conference at the middle school.  The middle school is set up in teams so the core teachers rotate in and out of the room during your conference time.  It’s a great system because in about a 20 minute conference, you are able to meet with all of the teachers!!

Hunter is actually on the same team that Jordan was in 7th grade.Screen shot 2013-10-25 at 8.48.30 AMOnly one of the teachers is new this year so they all remember Jordan.

Last night, every single one of the teachers said such nice things about Hunter and Jordan!!!  They complimented Chris and I on how we have raised them.  

One teacher said she really wished we had more kids coming through.  

The teachers were all happy with how Hunter does in class (he had all A+s or As) but even more pleased with the fine young man he is.  Every one of them mentioned the fact that he greets them by name when he walks into their classrooms each day and says “bye” or “have a nice day” or something when he leaves their room for the day.

They also said that both boys seem to be very happy and emotionally stable (which is a big deal in middle school!!!).

Even when you think you are doing a semi-OK job with your kids, it is always nice to hear from their teachers that they think the same thing.

And, just for fun, here is a picture of Hunter last night for his cello group.  They all decided to wear costumes since they won’t have group next week on Halloween.  See if you can figure out Hunter’s costume.

Hunter & celloHappy Fun Friday!!!


PS – do you get it?  Hunter is supposed to be his cello and his cello is “dressed” as him!!!
