The goal is to keep your balance, not fall off and have fun and get some exercise.
FARGO - The small, white house with a crisp green lawn near the quiet curve of a cul-de-sac with a patch of neatly tied-up irises in the front is the very picture of a grandparents’ home. But there’s a room in the home of Carla and Wayne Viseth that their granddaughter doesn’t like to sleep in. That is the
