What We Did Instead

>> Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Caelan has preschool once a week for 1 1/2 hours. That's not really enough time to go home and get anything done before picking her up so Brenna and I usually run errands. Today, however, we had no errands to run.

My first instinct was to pack up the small laptop and head to Panera. I even loaded some free games onto the iPod Touch for Brenna to play while I worked.

And then I thought about it... How much work would I really get done? And, since my job is one I created for myself my deadlines are often self imposed (sometimes I have "real" deadlines, but most often they are my own).

Then I looked at the weather and saw that today may be the only day this week without rain. Surely I could do something with Brenna that she would enjoy more than sitting indoors- even if it would involve a yummy pastry!

So I took her to our local sports complex which is filled with winding pathways and helped her learn to rollerblade with the great 3-wheeled blades we found at a garage sale last year.

Definitely time better spent...


Look at that smile! And she was doing quite well by the time we ended.

It looks like you made one little girl very happy with the time you spent.

Oh man ... was that at Prairie Ridge or whatever it's called??? That is my favorite place when we have our ball tournaments. I don't get to come over Memorial Day for Jake's tourney because Drew has one in a different city that weekend. :-(

She looks like she is having a blast. Way to go Mom! :)
