It’s fall break here for this week. Shhh…don’t tell the girls, but Grammi is visiting and we’ve got a couple other surprises up our sleeves.
This Saturday, our YMCA had a kids/family partner challenge class. The girls have been watching me participate for weeks, so they were thrilled one was added with them in mind. And, they were the only kids there (thank goodness we made it!).
Despite their form in this staged picture, they did great. They didn’t complain during the entire class and kept moving. They even modified if they needed to without missing a beat. They worked so hard and I’m very proud of them. Sunday morning, the oldest asked me if I was sore and proceeded to ask for an epsom salt bath!
I forgot to take or get somebody to take a picture of us all working out together. I like the idea of a family staying fit together and challenging ourselves and each other. Maybe next Saturday I’ll get a picture!
During B’s nap, I was getting some work done. When she woke up, she was sent downstairs and found me and asked to sit on my “lappy” and to make “silly faces.” After the silly faces, I have no idea what we were doing, but E grabbed my phone and snapped a picture. It’s a messy moment and I love it.
Another day, another after nap “silly faces” session. But, I managed to squeeze in a nice picture, too. E told me she was “too busy” to take a picture, so I grabbed my “evensies” (aka #2 and #4) and got a great smily one with them!
This week is sure to be off and test me with our different schedule, but I’m going to say it now that it’s going to be a great week, so therefore it will be. Right? Right!
What were you up to this week?
Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
