Chef Solus and The Explorers Watch Less T.V

Hi everyone. We had a long day exploring the steps of the pyramid and learning all about how
fun it is to be active. We were so tired that we all decided to hit the sack a little early.
That night Tyler had a very strange dream. He dreamt that all the kids of the world sat in front of the TV all day. They never went outside, they never ran, jumped or played. They just spent all their time in front the TV. He dreamt that soon he joined all the kids sitting in front of the TV. Before he realized it, he had no energy. His body felt tired and sluggish because his muscles did not get the activity it needed. He began to feel sick.
Tyler woke up and realized that this was just a bad dream. He looked around and saw the other explorers getting ready to have breakfast before we all started our hike back to the pyramid.
Tyler quickly got dressed and came to the campsite for breakfast. He wanted to share the strange dream he had with everyone. After listening to Tyler’s strange dream, we realized that it is easy to become so interested in TV that you forget about all the fun things you can do instead of watching TV.
So we sat around the campfire and made a list to remind us that we should really only watch TV for 2 hours or less each day. That way, we would have to time to do all the other fun stuff.
