Kings Firecrackers

Mondays are often kind of blah. It's back to work day for many of our humans, so we thought we would start this week off with a big bang. Wake up, all you furries and humans - the Kings Firecrackers are here!

The Firecrackers are a performance jump rope team made up of talented 4th-8th graders from the Kings Local School District in Ohio. Coached by Lynn Kelley, they perform at venues across the country. Some notable past performances have been at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a Presidential Inauguration and an appearance on The David Letterman Show. (From the Firecrackers website.)

This video is from a performance at the U.S. Naval Academy. And yes, they are always so energetic.Enjoy.

Now that you're awake, have a purring and tail wagging day.
