"Soccer"

Gummy Bear started PeeWee "soccer" class last week. The class is 10 weeks and is composed of 3 to 5 year olds. I give the coach a lot of credit. Trying to teach 9 preschoolers how to play soccer deserves more than the $10 an hour she probably earns. Most of her time is spent herding and reminding them not to touch the ball with their hands.
Stretching is an important beginning for all "exercise"

Dribbling
Meanwhile, keeping Cheeky Monkey occupied, predictably means food and frequent retrieval from the field of play.
Puffs? I love Puffs!

Meanwhile, Gummy Bear hasn't quite gotten the hang of not touching the ball with his hands.


Even when the other kids have.
My soccer ball. MINE!

Doh

And then Cheeky Monkey laid down in protest.
I protest that you won't give me anymore Puffs.

The good news for me is that the coach runs their little butts off.
And then they sleep.

Love it. Activity definitely makes the nights easier around here as well. I can honestly say that one of the best thing that we did was join Xsport Fitness here in Chicago....Morgan and I get to workout and Nolie gets to basically go to daycare for an hour....and it only costs $10 a month on top of our gym membership. That little girl does not stop running around the entire hour that she's there.
