With strong muscles, we can reduce the risk of falling and be able to handle the tasks of our day-to-day life in- dependently as we grow older. If that sounds appealing, consid- er embarking on a strength training regimen. My husband and I agreed to work on this effort together. Ac- cording to the National Institute on Aging, these are some tips to start a weight-training program. Check with your health-care provider before beginning a strength training program, especially if you have back or hip issues. Join a class to get some training, employ a personal trainer, or at least read articles and/or watch DVDs or online demonstrations. Start with light weights and grad- t ally increase the amount of weight. You can use gym equipment or weights in your house, or even 1.- or 2-pound cans of food. lfyou cannot lift or push the weight more than eight times in a row, you should re- duce the amount of weight. Try to do strength exercises at least twice a week and build your en- durance to 30 minutes of strength training at a time. Avoid exercising the group ofmuscles two days in a row: For ex- ample work your upper body one day and your lower body the next day. This pattern allows your muscles to recover. Check out the NDSU Extension Service's "Nourishing Boo ers and Beyond" website at http://ww and then click on "lnuscles." We have linked to websites with picture- based workbooks and videos that show you how to do many different exercises. We also have recipes and nutrition handouts to help you be- come stronger and potentially health- ier.

The mosaic is made from flooring tiles and is arranged in vibrant Aggie school colors of yel- low, black, and white. The project was a collaborative effort by all three first grade classes. Miss Tait's class placed the yellow tiles, Mrs. Forsgren's class placed the white and Mrs. Johnson's class the black. The students laid out the design after study- ing about mosaics and murals in class. Stu- dents used tiling adhesive to stick the crashed pieces of tile to a piece ofptyboard. Jana Gudmundson, who spearheaded the project, said the kids were really interested in making the mosaic. "The kids really worked hard on this," Jana said, "They were so cre- ative, especially in the 'puzzJe' part of the proj- ect. It was good to see them working together and it's quite impressive now that it's done."
