Thankful Running

Thankful Running

We are using Dr. Sears’ L.E.A.N. Kids: A Total Health Program for PE this school year.  Part of this involves promoting a good attitude toward life.  I had my boys run around for 20-30 minutes while they took turns listing something for which they were thankful.  They ended up with over 100 different things on their list.  They really enjoyed this activity and asked to do it again the next day.

Here is their list:

  1. No more fish have died this morning.
  2. Myself
  3. That I like fish.
