You’ve Never Been Where?!

Today for my 44 I did rocking squat – it was every bit as awkward as it sounds!!  

Start in a squat position – 

rock onto toes
rock onto toes


rock back onto heels
rock back onto heels

More than anything this is a nice way to warm-up your shins and calves – and get a little burn from holding the squat!!!

And, it was another happy day on the treadmill!!!  I did 8 miles at a fairly steady pace – just a few seconds under an hour or right at 7:30 pace and then another 1.15 miles super easy.  I’m hoping to have more running days this year – trying to be smart about it though because I have a history of stress fractures. (in 10 years I’ve had 3 or 4 in my right foot and 1 in each hip)

What?!  How did this happen?  

And, to make things even worse, neither Chris nor the boys  have ever been to a rodeo!!!

Of course, then Chris reminded  me that they have been skiing, to lots of beaches and for 5 straight summers we went to Hawaii starting when Hunter was 4 and Jordan 6.  (The Hawaii gig was because we got to fly Space A, free, on the tanker – and I think it is time for another trip!!!)

But still, the circus is like having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich – it is part of growing up!!!

Jordan said, “I’m not going to a circus.  I don’t want to see clowns juggling swords with creepy faces.”  OY!!!  

Maybe I will take them to a cattle auction!!  None of them (Chris or the boys) have ever been to one of those either and I think everyone should experience the thrill of a cattle auction!!!  (I used to go with my grandparents – good times!!!)

Have you been to the circus?  A rodeo?  What about a cattle auction?
What is one place you think all kids should experience at least once?

Happy Wednesday!
