We recently took our three year old granddaughter to pick strawberries at pick your own Blessington Farms located at 510 Chisholm Road in Simonton, Texas. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed delicious strawberries! It was our first visit to a hydroponic farm and our first time to travel through Simonton, Texas, population 824. Simonton is only fifteen miles from Katy, just past the town of Fulshear.
In researching Simonton, I learned about an inspirational true story documentary filmed there in 2008 that demonstrates the spirit of forgiveness entitled, “The Heart of Texas.” I think that Katy and Fulshear residents should be proud to live so close to a town that is filled with wonderful people who were obviously touched by God. For a preview of the film, watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzcWkvizqEg&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DQzcWkvizqEg&app=desktop
Those who know me know that I watch Carina during most days, rather than place her with a babysitter or in daycare. While I am blessed to have the ability to do so, I found myself using it as an excuse not to exercise.
After discussing the issue (i.e., complaining) with my mom, she found the perfect solution – Baby Boot Camp Katy!
Not only did I get a fantastic workout, I also connected with an amazing group of like-minded moms and dads.
The owner, Maria Gorosito, is knowledgeable and encouraging. She and the other trainers make sure that class is different each day, while suggesting modifications for each person’s ability level.
Baby Boot Camp is a one-hour interval training class that incorporates strength training, cardio, yoga, and core work.
Carina loves doing drills with me and enjoys being outside. I love that she is learning that it’s fun to be fit!
Baby Boot Camp provides an effective fitness regimen, a supportive environment, and a way to spend time with your kid(s).
Exercise modifications can be made for pregnant women, new moms, and active moms who are ready for an additional challenge.
The City Council of the City of Katy, Texas proclaimed it. All across Houston and Katy, kids aged 5-17 will be selling lemonade from their lemonade stands in order to learn about business.
