It was an awesome day at the Thicket. I always suspected that Christopher Columbus was more of a pirate than an explorer, so there you have it. Pieces of “Eight” and it was awesome. We did some warm up exercises, Tree Trunks, Jumping Jacks, Toy Soldiers, Windmills, and Arm Circles Backward and Forward (All IC) and got to work on:
