Hula hooping is my new obsession….

I am LOVING hula hooping. Not with those cheap kid ones from CVS that nobody can do, but nicer ones. I will have to post some video soon. I keep thinking of all the ways I could use them with my kids. Also, I started doing some baton tricks today just for manual dexterity improvement, and mostly because I was hoping if I could figure out the baton I could figure out how to use it with the hula hoop. 

I have a few elementary school girls, like in 4th grade, who I think would love the baton and/or hula hooping as little warm ups or breaks during our OT sessions. You know, mix fun with torture… 😉  I must remember that next school year. Yay for school occupational therapists 🙂 
Oh, and I plan to do some shadowing and extra volunteering in the NICU (neonatal ICU) this summer. I love the NICU and already volunteer there as a baby cuddler once a week on weekends, but I’ll try to do more in weekdays so I can observe the OTs! I don’t plan to leave my school OT job, but just love NICU OT and want to learn more. 🙂
Hope everyone is having a nice start to their summer!
