To exercise!!!! They wanted to go with me on my walk this morning so I said "sure"....sunscreen...check...
s...check....water... check....I knew they wouldn't make it far but I wanted to encourage them to exercise so off the 4 year old and soon to be six year old went. I was proud of them as they made it a mile with me. I then dropped them off for Papi to watch and did the rest of my 4 miles. 4 miles here in the hot humid weather seems like a lot more work than in my beautiful Mexican weather. I already miss the 75 perfect temps.
Then we spent several hours going through way too many toys and I helped them decide to give a lot away to poorer children. We ended up with two really big tub full of things to give away. I can not believe how much stuff is out there for kids today. It's kinda sad how much there is and how childeren are marketed to while watching tv. I don't let them watch too much TV either as it's all about what they should eat (crap) and junk toys. I know many of you are like me and can name just about all the toys you owned when you were little. We didn't get many toys...we were lucky and played mostly outside with nature. It's sad as parents today are scared to let their kids outside to play by themselves. the world is a different place.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing well.
