The kids were initially up for doing tennis, but on further reflection, I’m not sure if we’re going to do it. Have to check in with CH and DE, but I think it might be better to just play on the home court in town. Also, if A does track and N does lacrosse, we won’t have time. Plus, they both will want to go golfing, which is a complete time drain and pretty much burns an entire day, not to mention the entire contents of my wallet.
If it’s a warm, and the recent warm weather portends a warm summer, then we’ll do lots of swimming, though the kids always want to go to the dam, and I personally don’t like the water there. N has been showing some interest in soccer, I think he’d be good at it, but whenever I ask, I get a big NO, which is fine. A also has karate, and she’ll be testing for her purple belt this time around.
With hockey cooling off (yeah, right), the kids can focus more on guitar/piano/drums. Now that N has his snare drum, he’s got more to work with, and I think his teacher said she has a drum set he can borrow. Talk about noisy. A also has her upcoming choral performance, for which she’s excited. Also, her guitar teacher arranges performances for his students, and she might get to do a solo if she’s inspired.
Finally, in what is truly a moment to celebrate, the ice will return to Union Arena during the summer and life can once again commence in a normal manner, because that means the return of hockey (pause until cheering subsides). How cool is that?
Then again, there are some who think I need to seek professional help. To them I would ask, "It's taken you that long to figure that out?"
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to davidyuweb for the pic.
