Our curriculum director recently created a new tagline quote for her email signature, and it immediately caught my eye.  It simply said, "Adults call it working out.  Kids call it playing.  We call it JumpBunch!"  Now she decorated her JumpBunch with all the various colors from our logo, so it looked way better than my plain old text, but you get the idea.  Those three short statements sum it up perfectly.

June 6 was Global Running Day, and many of our franchise locations made a special effort to focus on running in their classes that day. Now we all know that it is not difficult at all to get kids to run. Most will gladly just take off with even an implied invitation! That's the key though for us adults...giving the invitation. Kids will follow our lead, so it falls to us to be accountable. So Global Running Day was not as much about actually running as it was about simply moving...and setting the example for our kids by doing so.

The poster that JumpBunch franchisees place on the walls in schools hosting our classes has the following two words standing out...ACTIVE AND HAPPY!  Of course, we all want nothing more than for kids to be happy and healthy!  Our mission, and the role we play in helping make that happen, is to get kids moving more, introduce them to many fun sports/activities, and teach that being active is a choice that makes your life better.  We like to say "building healthy habits early"!

There's a lot going in February.  Rumor is that there is a pretty big football game (you might even call it Super)  to kick things off.  There is also an important and fun holiday full of candy, flowers, and gifts from the heart.  Speaking of hearts, February is also the month that we are encouraged to consider how well we are taking care of that most important organ in our bodies.

Some things simply can't wait for resolutions.  To clarify, we are talking about New Year's resolutions.  That mythical "starting line" that occurs on January 1 each year can be recreated in any month on any day that you choose.  As parents, we all want our kids to be happy and healthy so we try to put them in position to be active through a variety of programs. However, sometimes we fail to realize that while that is good, the best way to motivate our kids to be active is to give them a good example to follow.
