Confessions of a Midwesterner

If you have ever lived in traveled through or visited the Midwest, you know it is called "The heart of it all", "The crossroads of America", the corn belt, the hog belt...well you get the picture.

Then there are also the staples to the Midwestern diet, bacon and sweet corn. I have lived in Indiana my entire life and can say with absolute certainty that I hate bacon and sweet corn. Never the less, it was still alot of fun to watch my family "shuck" the sweet corn we fixed for dinner this week.

Zumba: Super exercise Fun

I have been a dedicated exerciser for about 10 years. I do a variety of things in order to stay motivated. I walk, kick box, and do step aerobics. In the last year, I have also added Zumba to my work out routine. Zumba is aerobic dancing with a latin flavor, and it is so much fun that you do not even realize you are exercising until it is over; it is offered at fitness centers across the USA. So, if you are looking for something new to try or are new to exerise you mught find that Zumba is a good fit.

Splashin' Bucket Fun

This week we found a cool way to beat the heat without using a bunch of water. I filled 2 clean feed buckets with water (You can also use pans or buckets) and had water fun. We gave barbie a bath, tossed balls and blocks and the kids even climbed in the buckets. You can also do tosses with spounges if you have these available.
