First Week of School, Whew!

First Week of School, Whew!

It is officially the end of our first week of 8th grade and our first week of using the Stability Ball for PE. That went WAY better than expected! We had first used the stability ball when Nathan was maybe 4 years old. It lasted about two weeks and one of the cats punctured a hole into it. We didn’t buy another one because of concerns it would happen again. But after spending all summer reviewing exercise ideas, I decided to try again. I am so glad I did! Nathan actually loves this tool. He didn’t complain about anything I asked him to do. And now we are keeping it on the top rung of our cat tree where it is safe and sound.

This is the Stability Ball we use. We purchased it from Amazon for $17.99. It comes with an air pump, directions, and measuring tape to help make sure that you inflate it to just the right size. If you decide to purchase a Stability Ball, make sure you pick the size that matches your height. We got the Medium, which according to the American Council of Exercise, is appropriate for 5  ft. 1  inches to 5 ft.  8 inches of height, although it’s more complicated than that. More on that later…
