Dance Off!

Recently, I received a request to allow a guest post on my blog.  I had never before considered this but when I reviewed the post and learned that the post related to the Children's Miracle Network, I was intrigued.  The Children's Miracle Network does so much for families and children with medical needs in communities across the USA.  
Plus, it meant I could post a video of my kiddos dancing.   Will recently began doing this on his own with Ellie, grabbing her hands & "dancing" with her.  She may be immobilized in a body cast but that doesn't mean she can't dance with her big brother!
(Thanks to Mimi for tech support.)
(This was filmed with a flip camera I received for Christmas.  Don't judge the flip though by my poor skills.  Also, I had to convert it from hd to a lower res video in order to post it here.  Normally, the picture quality is amazing! I love my flip.)

Dance can be a fun, easy way to introduce physical activity into your family's daily routine.  As a provider of educational child care, Primrose Schools has recognized and is actively fighting against the childhood obesity epidemic.

Primrose preschools understand the importance or physical activity, eating healthy and the joy and healthy benefits that indoor and outdoor play can provide.  By incorporating dance into your families routine, your family can show support against the epidemic and help promote fitness and strengthen family ties.

The Family Dance-off supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds for more than 170 children's hospitals, which collectively treat 17 million children annually for every illness and injury imaginable.

Families are encouraged to record and submit a 30 second video of themselves dancing to promote fitness and strengthen family ties.
