We have been
frantically thrusting patiently trying to ascertain girl.imp's sporting interests. To this end we have signed g.imp up for every seasonal sporting activity ever imagined talked g.imp into trying soccer, swimming and...well, there is nothing after that last 'and...'.
To date we have met with limited failures.
Soccer: By the end of the 'season' (this was an eight week course for 4-6 year olds) g.imp had all but three participants sitting in a circle in the middle of the field, picking flowers, and singing 'Happy Birthday' and 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'.
Swimming: g.imp actually loves the pool but not the actual swimming part...
and...: We have failed to find any other athletic activity that interests her--UNTIL TODAY!! Yes, daddy struck gold this a.m. Today, with the help of a cloth Frisbee, I got g.imp outside for over 11/2 hours. We played catch until lunchtime and I actually had to resort to bribing g.imp with a peanut butter sandwich to get her to agree to stop and go inside!
In other news both girl.imp and boy.imp have found a new favorite song. Every time it comes on the radio (which is almost daily--Thank you Major League Baseball), they hush us up and break out into song. Every time they start singing and swaying and doing the hard-rock 'head bob' to the music I can see them in a stadium holding up flaming lighters...
This is Budweiser. This is Budweiser. ...blah blah blah... This is Beer!
