Nick's Field Trip to the Gym

As part of his class study on health for the month of August, Nick's teacher took them on a field trip to a nearby gym. The gym employees were so nice to show all the kiddos the fancy fitness equipment & explain how each one worked & how it helped to build strong muscles. Afterwards, the kids were shown a presentation on healthy eating & one of the instructors gave a dance demonstration. (He really got into it... the kids did not!)

Here are some pictures of our fun day...

Afterwards, one of the mother's suggested taking the kids to Gonuts Donuts to watch the donuts being made. (It's exactly like a Krispy Kreme donut store in the States.) So, basically, we just undid an entire month's worth of teaching about healthy eating habits!!

Nick's school sounds like so much fun! Isn't it great to be in the classroom volunteering and being able to go on the field trips. I am looking forward to that when my boys are in school!

Did you get a free donut from Gonuts Donuts? Krispy Kreme stopped giving away free donuts:( Were they as good as Krispy Kreme donuts?

Now that cracks me up .... going to the donut shop after working out and learning about healthy eating!! That's my kind of reward for going to the gym!! I think I might do real well at Nick's preschool :)
