Free Time

Yesterday was Miss A's last swimming lesson. (Notice the awesome Speedo bathing suit she's wearing. I found it at Value Village last week. Too bad she only got to wear it to one lesson.) Unfortunately for both of us she was kind of grumpy. She always loves the water though and has a good time swimming even if she is tired. I took this picture while I was in the pool and the instructor was holding A at the top of the slide. Can't you just see the dare-devilish look in her eyes?




In a way I'm kind of relieved that they are finished. It was a 2:00 lesson which meant that she'd be napping about an hour later than usual. Also the weather has just really began to turn ugly. It's officially winter what with the snow, colder temperatures and blustery winds. Not the kind of weather to be lugging a wet kid around in. Not to mention that is one less thing we have to do on one of my 'days off'.

On the other hand we may be bored. It's the only play group type thing that we do other than her getting to play with all the kids at church on Sundays. I may have to look into some other kind of group thing. Something cheap so that if the weather is crappy I won't feel obligated to go and 'get my money's worth'.

I know with Christmas so quickly approaching I won't mind the extra free time. At least for now.

We have got the "winter" crap in spades around here too and WAAAAH! Why, oh why don't you live near me? We could play and talk and party ...

Yeah, that winter stuff surprised me this morning! I know of a play group on fridays, I haven't officially gone to it yet because things keep coming up to prevent it. But I just remembered Fridays are bad for you, so its no help!

It's winter EVERYWHERE! ICK! It's hard enough lugging around a dry, completely covered baby, let alone a wet, nap-ready one!
Have fun with the play-group search! I didn't ever find one, until Cam was in school full-time! ARGH!

I forget where I just read about playgroups, but there is one at a different Community Centre at 11:00 each day except Tuesday I think. If I find where I read that I'll send it to you. I'm pretty sure the West End Community Centre has one.
