The Catcher Lives On

It is one of those weeks when I have deadlines looming and I am under editing stress. At times like this my blog tends to get ignored a little. Suddenly, the week is upon me and I must get a post out!

This week’s post is a peek at one of the many weird and wonderful games I play at home with my kids when we’re bored. Trust me, a game of catcher never leaves one bored afterward—tired and exhilarated, but not bored. Bonus is, it’s an unbelievable workout…try it!

My girls and I play the crazy game of catcher once in a while. I played it with Mist and Tabs when they were younger and now Pip and I play sometimes. More about us playing catcher here: Catcher. It’s an amazing work out. The catcher has to keep moving (slow-mo dancing) and the dancer must keep dancing (always in and out of reach of the catcher).  All you need is music (and a super, solid, stable coffee table). Sometimes you just have to use what’s all around you and create your own weird fun…works for us!
