I bought an exercise ball a few weeks ago in hopes that it would give me something new to try out to keep me motivated to work out. The boys pulled it out today in boredom and so I spent the next 45 minutes bouncing Andrew and Zach on it then bouncing them onto the couch; then the boys would lay on it and hold on while I rolled them back and forth. At least it's getting used, huh? (And I sure got a workout - my arms were tired after bouncing 37-pound Zach on it then onto the couch! Maybe it wasn't a waste of money...)
It has been so cold here in Albuquerque. Tonight the boys and I went to Wal-Mart while Rhett had the Young Men at our house and the temperature gage in the van dropped 25 degrees in the first few minutes of our trip - from 47 (the car had been in the garage) all the way down to 22 degrees. That's not even fun...
I have been working for the past week or so on getting ready for a little preschool that I am going to do with Zach and a couple of other children from the ward. I'm actually really excited about it and everywhere I look I find new ideas for it. I just love teaching children and seeing the excitement on their faces when they learn something new - I guess that's why I'm a mom, eh??
Buy the way - I have kept my New Year's resolution to work out at least 3 times a week so far - yea, me!!
