On the Go

Boredom has not been a problem for me recently, mainly because the kids’ activities are keeping me uber-busy, plus we’re exploring the wonders of Wii Fit (which means I’m currently so sore that it’s tough getting up and down the stairs). I never thought a video game would give me such a workout, but it’s actually pretty cool — not least because Chris and I compete to see who can get the best results. Kudos to Nintendo, I say.

Justin started a new soccer program yesterday, and I’m pleased to report that he actually showed some interest in playing soccer. This time it’s indoors (at a state-of-the-art facility across town I hadn’t seen before…very cool) so at least the kids weren’t off chasing butterflies or digging for worms. But at any given point at least half the players were wandering the field aimlessly — I feel sorry for anyone who tries to coach a group of three-year-olds. Justin seemed to enjoy the warm-up stretches and the running-around-and-kicking-the-ball portion, but he wasn’t much into the organized drills, and he lost interest entirely about halfway through the class. Still, we called it a success.
