Joya's night time walks) as soon as the girls get up. I load everyone up in the stroller, give them their cheerios and water that they've been eating on the couch in front of the tv all winter and we go for a walk. It has been a nice start to our day and I feel better knowing the dog and I have gotten some exercise. I downloaded the app Map My Walk so that I could see how far we were walking. It is often hard to tell when we are walking through subdivisions, along sidewalks, on bike trails, etc. I feel like I should get extra credit for pushing a stroller with two kids and walking an overweight lab at the same time. I didn't see a button in the app to click for that!
So I guess this officially makes me a soccer mom! Ha! I wonder when the minivan gets delivered!! We jumped into sports full force this week. Both girls resumed swim class and K started soccer. I don't want to have my kids over dedicated to sports and be rushing from event to event all week long. I watch families do that and I don't know how they make it work. So I never intended to do that especially with a 1 and a 3 year old. We have had both girls in swim lessons since they turned one and we usually do a session and then take a break. Well, last time both girls could be in the same class which meant all 4 of us were in the water once a week. This time they are in different classes and K doesn't need a parent in the water anymore. We were trying to figure out how to make it work. There was one night that had both classes but I would have to get them there before my husband got home and then we'd have a 40 minute break before the next class. There is lots to do at the YMCA but not really how I wanted to spend the time (especially since we aren't currently members so we really can't use all the resources there). So I decided to take K during the day and M and I watch. It went pretty well. She was hesitant at first because it was a new teacher but she was fine once she got in. The hardest part was keeping M busy so she didn't try to get in the water too. Then we signed K up for a soccer class that is the same time as M's swim lesson. Then we can all go to the Y together and then divide and conquer for classes. Both girls seemed to love it this week. K keeps pretending to be her soccer teacher and have us practice. Even with a massive collision and bump on the head with another kiddo, she still loved it. And M was so happy to be back in the water. So it adds another layer of crazy to our week to head to the Y twice a week but I think it will be good crazy and will hopefully tire them out!Pre-K summer review. Because I created if for a specific student based on what his mom said he was capable of, I feel like it is too hard for the general population. I've never gotten negative feedback but every time it sells I worry that they are going to think it is too hard. I reached out to my Instagram family and asked some Pre-K/K teachers to look it over. It seems like most agree with me, it is too hard for most incoming kindergartners. So I need to work on that soon.
I also made a junior version of my Catholic Saints Bingo. We are going to play with our firsties next week and after playing Easter Bingo, I realized that a full size bingo board might be too hard for them, especially when they don't have a lot of picture clues to help them. I am almost finished with a smaller version.
Have a great weekend!
