From the mailbag:
My town is in a heat wave, and all my kids want to do is stay inside and marinate.
How can I get them to exercise in all this heat?

You're having a heatwave too?
Over here in MamaBearLand, it's beyond brutal, so I really hear you there.
Here's what MamaBear has done:
1.) Roller skating!
Okay, roller-skating is a lie. My local rink closed early because nobody attended. But hey, just think of how great it would be if it was open! 🙂
Find a list of roller skating rinks here.
2.) Ice skating!
Don't want roller skating? How about ice skating? At least it's cold! 🙂

3.) Dance Dance Revolution in your home!
Don't want to start the car?
Have your kids exercise at home with Dance Dance Revolution!
It's a fantastic way to burn calories and have a blast too.
But be warned – DDR mats are now difficult to find in stores. You might have to order them online (as I just discovered this morning).
Hope the above gives you some ideas!
