In my real life, my job is Youth Director at our church. Through the winter months, most of my time is spent at the computer planning lessons, planning activities, teaching kids. But come summer, I have five days of summer youth camp. The camp is built on the side of a mountain in South Alabama. It is June and the humidity often reaches 144% during the day time. Night is more miserable. And you have to be decently dressed, because it’s a Baptist Church camp.
So I have been working on getting back into shape after months of rain and sitting and eating pretty much anything the grocery store sells. Now I hate exercise as much as the next middle age woman in the south. But I have found a way to not only get in shape, but also do genealogy. Podcasts…..
Now all genealogists know about the basic ones:
But did you know about:
Colonial Williamsburg Past and Present
Virginia Historical Society
Civil War Traveler
Just to name a few. Just search Civil War, History, Revolutionary War, or maybe even a topic of interest like Civil War Medicine. And start walking. In two weeks, I have managed to gain a pound. 🙂 But I can now run up a flight of stairs without feeling light headed and I have learned a great deal of history. Maybe that’s where the pound came from?!?
