Today for Healthy Lifestyles, we went to the track at Civic Field for the Fit School program! We got a lot of exercise by running and walking! There was a group of people who had been doing Fit School for a while and they were all very nice to us! Our coach's name was Carol and "she taught us stretches," said the Running Jalapeño, who adds "I made a lot of friends!" Tracky says "I was thumbs up," which is an understatement given how fast he was running. "I had fun," added the Running Jalapeño with the last of his strength. We could all use a nap, but we would love to go back! Thanks Carol and Fit School!
Today, we made lunch wraps! We packed them full with tomatoes, onions, lettuce, peppers, turkey, cheese, and avacado!
We learned about avocados! Avocados nickname is alagator pears! We also learned that they have more potassium than bananas. Who knew!
