Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Sig the skateboard has the best balance, and waits eagerly to play. But today the skateboard is playing with a new learner. How will they do?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:00

Narrator: Female

Best Balance Excerpt:

Sig giggled too, ready to play. The girl placed the skateboard on the ground and stepped on, one foot on a yellow-green swirl and the other on a blue-purple one. Sig wobbled back and forth, as the girl balanced herself. Sig began to feel nervous, worrying that the girl might fall off. The skateboard tried her best to hold steady, but as the girl wobbled, so did Sig. Then after one big wobble the girl stumbled off of the skateboard. Sig took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she saw that the girl was ok. The girl took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she readied herself to try the skateboard again.

Wave Jump Boogie: a relaxing bedtime story

Wave Jump Boogie: a relaxing bedtime story

Wakely Waverunner heads out to play in the swirling waters of the mouth of the harbor. Between the waves and the boats entering and leaving, Wakely does the wave jump boogie.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Ronald’s Turn”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Wave Jump Boogie” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:04

Narrator: Male

Wave Jump Boogie Excerpt:

The trailer carried Wakely all the way to the lake, and backed down a steep ramp.  As he rolled down the ramp, water rose up, from covering the wheels of the trailer, to tickling Wakely’s belly.  The water splashed under and around him, and the little wave runner relaxed.  His rider released Wakely from the trailer, and he slowly drifted next to the dock.  He enjoyed floating.  Any worries the little wave runner may have had, drifted away with the waves.

His rider tugged Wakely over and snugged him to the dock.  Now the little wave runner waited for his rider to park the truck and trailer.  He was very excited to play on the lake, and could hardly wait to get started.  All this waiting was difficult, so Wakely took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and then smiled.  The little wave runner realized that waiting gave him some time to just enjoy the sensation of floating.  Wakely rocked gently as the water rolled back and forth, back and forth underneath him.  The lake seemed pretty calm today.

Wakely was just getting in to the rhythm of the water when his rider returned.  His motor rumbled and the little wave runner moved away from the dock.  Wakely wanted to zip right out into the lake, but he knew he needed to move slowly in the entrance to the harbor, and watch for other boats.  So, he took his time and carefully made his way out to the lake.  Once the little wave runner had made it out onto the lake, he turned up his engine and began zipping around in an open area.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Ronald’s Turn: a calming kids’ story

The bridge project is almost done. Today is Ronald’s turn to shine. The roller gets to put the finishing touches on the bridge!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:05

Narrator: Male

Ronald’s Turn Excerpt:

“We get to finish the bridge today!” Dizzy said. “Are you excited Ronald?” Ronald smiled and said, “Absolutely!” Although he started to feel a little sad. That was the second time someone mentioned that the bridge would be finished today. It would be completed, and the roller had hardly done anything. Ronald took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) and concentrated on the fun he would have working with the team today. While Ronald talked himself back up, the contractor joined the construction vehicles.

“Good morning, everyone. Today, as I’m sure you all know, we’ll be finishing up the bridge. Barry the Barge will meet us at the water again and is ready to carry you across. Connor, Barry will help you place the slabs that Dizzy poured last week. Ellie, Barry will carry you, Danny and Dory to add the asphalt. Ronald, you’ll finish up by smoothing the road out. Dizzy, we don’t have anything for you today. We’ll see you when we get back.” Then with a smile the Contractor said. “OK! Let’s get this done.”

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Merry Mermaid Excerpt:

Lisa and her mom patiently waited in the line.  Moving slowly and steadily forward, Finally, they reached the front. Lisa and her mom were on their way in!  Now, they just needed to find a place to set the beach bag and their stuff.  Lisa’s mom looked around and spotted an open area, with a giant umbrella for shade.  She held Lisa’s hand, and began to make her way there.

As they weaved through the crowd, Lisa was bumped and jostled a little bit.  Sometimes, people said, “Oh, excuse me!” and sometimes they didn’t seem to know they had bumped into her.
Although she was a little uncomfortable, Lisa understood that it was just that crowded.  When Lisa and her mom reached the spot in the shade, Lisa took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath).  She felt better now that she had more space.  Just then another girl, and her mom, squeezed through the crowd to reach the shady spot.
“Hi, I’m Lydia.”  The girl said.
“I’m Lisa.” Lisa replied.
Lydia said, “I like your swimsuit.  You look like a mermaid.”
“Thanks!” Lisa said. “I like yours too! Purple is one of my favorite colors!” It looked like she would definitely make a new friend today.

Then, Dragon noticed Owen, Andy, and Allie waiting on the street. They were laughing and smiling. Spotting Dragon, they waved. Smiled and waving back Dragon felt relieved to find them. Dragon wondered why the kids were standing at the corner holding bags. Dragon decided to travel a little further from the forest to find out what was happening. After all, things had been going pretty well and Dragon was feeling more confident. As Dragon began to walk over to Allie, Owen, and Andy a bright yellow bus drove up. The bus stopped right in front of them and held out a stop sign, so Dragon stopped. Dragon could see James and Julia already sitting on the bus along with Ian, Mike, Rogelio, Helen, Brianna, Luis, Lydia, Alice, Anora, Max and Mia. As Dragon watched Andy, Allie, and Owen boarded the bus.
