I had to laugh at my exercise group today! 1st - the group is getting bigger almost every day! 2nd - They work so hard it is adorable! Now, today I introduced to the group the largest ball I could find at Wal-Mart. They all had a great time with it! They volleyed it, they kicked it, we did names and throws! They thought it was the best exercise they've had yet and fun, too! I asked if they thought they wanted to do it again soon and it was a 100% agreement across the board. Think I found a winner.
