We’re getting our movement in all day long!

Incorporating joyful movement into every day life is a great way to bond together as a family. Ask your children how it makes their bodies feel when they run, jump and play instead of focusing on how their bodies may look. Joyful movement can be anything from jumping on the trampoline to walking the dog and it happens in all shapes and sizes!
