Other Activities this Week:
While waiting for Nick and Alex at a 4 H meeting Monday afternoon, the rest of us went to the park and walked the nature trail and the walking trail. It was a little of 1.5 miles. It seemed like forever since we had been on the Nature Trail. It was a pretty day!
Tuesday the girls had gymnastics and Nick had youth. Lily has mastered her standing back tuck and Emmie has mastered her round off back handspring. I would post the videos but I know my internet would not cooperate. Especially since I have delay right now and all I am doing is typing.
Wednesday we had Kid's Club.
Thursday Lily Emmie and I went back to the park in between the time we had to drop Nick off and head for piano. It was another pretty day! Ballet was cancelled.
Friday Nicholas took his road test and is now a licensed driver. That is a good and bad thing ;) The car needs a little TLC and hopefully in a few weeks he will be able to take himself back and forth to school.
Saturday we went to Texarkana and went to iJump, an indoor trampoline park that has trampolines, dodge ball, basketball, iNinja course, climbing walls, indoor play area, and more. They had fun in their hour to play.
I don't know about you feel like I've lost an hour!!
I hope you had a great week!
