We have been up to so much this past week that I’m not all to sure how to organize my posts. So, excuse me if this starts to get a bit rambly and makes no sense.
One of the things that we are trying this summer is soccer. There is a great program that runs in Central Park 7 days a week, twice a day. It is a gentle separation program meaning that parents are asked to sit on the sidelines and not interfere with the class. I will say that this has been amazing. I get a lot of JOY just sitting and watching Mia interact with other kids and adults. I also like it because I get to see exactly what is going on in the class. Basically, I have ZERO stress during this 40 minute practice session. Emi and I just sit back and drink tea and laugh hysterically. Well, Emi sleeps actually. Mia participates in class a good portion of the time and does really well, but she also spends a good amount of time running around and acting like T-Rex. I can tell the teachers get a little bit worn out chasing her around, but I really enjoy watching this little comedy unfold.
Anyway, here are a few snapshots of the soccer practices that we have been to. We signed up for 20 sessions, and we have already used 3 in just a week, so I’m very certain that we will be getting our money’s worth.
Anyway, that is a little recap of our soccer lessons over the past week. We really have a great time parking the stroller in the shade and just watching Mia play with the other kids. I also like that it is about a 30 block walk down there and back which gives me a little bit more exercise in the day.
