Yesterday G had her very first activity – playing soccer for the first time! It was more “run around the field after balls” but it was so cute.
Annabel also started soccer after a many-year hiatus and I was very proud of her mindset (she knew she was one of the less experienced players — which has to be a little tough! — but was accepting of that and there to learn). She ended up getting a “Best Listening” medal and is excited to go back.
C was doing soccer before and probably would have happily continued but we wanted to make sure he didn’t get bored of any one thing so he is doing tennis. He had that yesterday too (at 9 am; Josh took him before heading to work).
It was quite the day! I ended it kind of tired and cranky and sunburned. My nose especially – I had applied with my mask on, and at one point I wasn’t near anyone so I took it off and laid back. #(*&@#@. Josh said Welcome to Florida. I informed him we had been here nearly 8 years but I did feel pretty silly for doing that. At least the kids didn’t burn . . .
I scrolled Insta for way too long (planner accounts, mostly) and rage-deleted the app from my phone at around 9 pm. Sigh. Trying to decide if I will reinstall tomorrow to post for BLP or take a more extended break.
❏ Order groceries. Next week I want to start trying to go in person again, and in particular I want to see if I can rely more on Trader Joe’s. (Somewhat as an experiment). But Josh is on call and I am not taking 3 kids with me, so today = ordering.
❏ Q1 tax stuff (for our nanny, FL re-employment tax gets filed quarterly)
❏ Meal plan. Lagliv posted 3 weeks of meals!! I will surely be pulling from this. Her choices always resonate with me!
❏ Park play date. With bagels. Weather permitting. We are going at 11, so maybe we’ll be lucky? And then we can get home & kids can have their screen time and we can all relax as it rains. (Maybe even with a NAP. For me.) Fingers crossed, that actually sounds pretty nice.
❏ C has a school project. It is due next Friday. Honestly, I am not super looking forward to helping with this. But maybe we can set a timer (he likes knowing there will be an ‘end’ to things) and just get started . . .
Students may choose one period from one of the three geological eras: Paleozoic Era, Mesozoic Era, or Cenozoic Era.
They can read and create a project about geology, climate, or biology of a particular time using some of the links below.
That project actually sounds kind of challenging to me. And I’m 40. (Almost 41.)
❏ RUN. Headed out early. Will listen to:
No Stupid Questions (current weekend running fave!)
Organize 365 “Discovering You” series.
