A Busy Kid....
I tend to be a homebody. I like my time at home, especially after working a full day. But somehow, in the last month or two, that precious time has been gobbled up by various extra-curricular activities. As I wrote in the last posting, my involvement in the band is our Monday evenings now.
James continues to LOVE his Cub Scouts and swimming lessons. And a few weeks ago he started wrestling. He had done this in kindergarden (boy, they start 'em young!!), but we skipped last year. He seems very happy to be back to it this year. They have practices on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and then meets every Saturday, to compete with other kids on the western slope of Colorado. Yesterday was his first meet and he came home with a bronze medal!! Third place isn't so bad for his first meet of the year!! We were very proud of him. His big sister, Lori, came up from Denver and surprised him! He was so happy to have her there at the meet!!
And so our weeks now fly by, being busy Monday, Tuesday, Thursday evenings and Sundays! As much as I'd like mellow home time, it's well worth it to see the big smiles on James' face as he thoroughly enjoys these various activities!!
This picture is from yesterday's awards ceremony, when he was awarded his bronze medal!! Way to go James!!
