They were giving out free pedometers at the Philadelphia Science Festival on the Parkway last weekend. I snagged one each for Jada and Aaron, and they haven't taken them off since. As is often intended for pedometers, counting steps has become a game for the two of them, punctuating by periodic announcements to Amy and me: "I got to 2,000 steps!" "3,000!" "4,000!" As parents who exercise regularly and hope our kids also develop such habits, we are happy to "get the run-around" by our kids in this case.
