I tried really hard to stay off of my computer all weekend, only getting on during the kid’s nap times. We had such a good time in the sun, and even this evening we stayed out until the clouds rolled in. If I was judging the weather for tomorrow by the clouds that rolled in I would say rain is definite, but King5 says the only day it might rain next week is Tuesday but the other days are going to be in the 60’s and cloudy. I don’t’ think I can complain. I’ve seen some people say it’s pretty darn hot already.
The Plasma Car became our best friend
Last year, I received a plasmacar free of charge to review on my blog, the kids are finally getting really good play out of it. One, we live in a neighborhood with sidewalk, and we live on the cul-de-sac, and the kids have claimed the street as theirs. Two, they are both older and much more coordinated, and the weather has been so nice.
I love seeing my kids be more active outside. I know that I SIT a lot so they SIT a lot and it hasn’t been healthy for any of us. So I’m trying really hard to put the computer down and get my but outside and more active right beside the kids.
We do live on just a bit of a hill and my fearless son likes to just go straight down the hill. I have to run sometimes to keep up with him because I’m terrified that he is going to get to the bottom of the hill and end up in the street. I know I’m just an overprotective mother, what can I say. So up and down the hill we go and Zoe has finally taken the hill a few times herself, why is it that with one child I experience fear and the other I experience pure pride?
I love living in a city, where land is inhabited by people and not by animals. We have neighbors and kids to play with. We have more kids on just our block than I ever had in my neighborhood growing up. I love living where we live. We had a great weekend and I hope you did too. Tell me about what you did.
