A few weeks ago Gwen ran in the Casa Kids k run. She had so much fun, even though she didn't want to do it when I first mentioned it. She and I have started walking around the neighborhood at least once a week for a "trash run" picking up trash as we walk. I like this because it's active, and we talk about not littering. Makes me feel pretty self-righteous. Tonight all three kids walked with me with the goal of picking up golf balls and we end up collecting a bag of trash along the way. I didn't even have to carry anyone! I also want to get Gwen walking to school once a week. Last Wednesday was National Walk to School Day. The whole family walked the mile to school and it was fun. It helped that there were cheer leaders and a band keeping things upbeat at school.
Now that the weather is pleasant we are playing outside after school. As hard as John and I try to get them to play soccer Gwen flat out refuses to practice. I think Jack and Maddy are almost ready for some actual game playing but they lose interest pretty fast in any organized games.
I wish I had some pictures! I have been terrible about taking photos and posting any the past few months. I will work on that, promise!
