Too early for yoga?

You might remember from my video of Peter that we got a Wii this Christmas. Sandra had been talking about wanting to try out the Wii Fit Plus that we kept seeing on television, so we ordered it from Amazon.com. It's actually pretty fun, although we still spend most of our time playing Super Mario Bros Wii instead of working out. The kids love to try and play too, and Emerson has managed to figure out all the Wii Sports games...She actually beats me at bowling sometimes!! Of course when they saw Sandra trying out yoga on the Wii fit, they were adamant that they wanted to try it too.

I will be the first to admit that yoga is much more difficult than I had expected. It's very soothing to have a computerized "coach" walk you through the process with a calm steady voice counting for you and reminding you to "inhale slowly, exhale slowly" at all the right points so you can focus. If you've ever seen a baby horse learning to walk, then you already know what I would look like on this thing. I'll spare you the video. Here's some pictures of the kids doing their exercises.
Breathe in
Breathe out

Do you see that look of intensity? The focus and determination? Emerson looks destined to get a good workout in and she isn't going to stop until she drops a pant size and officially wears size 5 slim-slim. Braeden on the other hand...well the look on his face might indicate that he'd just seen some terrifying ghost or something, but rest assured he really did enjoy himself while he was doing yoga. Happy Monday!
