What activity did you like best today and why?
Luci: The rocks because it was challenging.
Sienna: I liked lifting up the rocks and throwing them even though they were 14lbs. We also jogged with them. It was really hard. I also liked the boxing because it built up my upper body.
Mardi: I liked basketball because you could knock down other balls with yours.
Ellie: I like the duck activity the best.
Peyton: I liked the rocks because I liked doing workouts using my legs and arms.
