When I was little, and school was finished for the summer, I tried to be outside from the time I got up to when it was bedtime.
We lived a five minute walk from the nearest beach. My mom would pack a cooler filled with fruit and veggies and a thermos of Kool-Aid and take four kids out for the day. And I mean, the day. We'd get there at 10am and leave around 5pm. Swimming, sandcastles, sliding, swinging, running.
And if we weren't at the beach, we'd be organizing road hockey or stickball games. (We lived at the end of a dead end street.)
It's not exercise...it's FUN! And that's the whole point...
They're up in your face, they don't think you belong
Man, you got it, you got it goin' on
What breaks the weak just makes you strong
You got game, baby bring it on, bring it on
