Soccer Blues

Today was my long day at work, when I put in a full 8 hours. Full-time workers and parents will laugh at me, but hey... I have my excuses!

Morning hours are the hardest. I'm everywhere, usually with a kid on my hip... making crafts, directing a skit, singing "Father Abraham," delivering snacks, putting sleeping babies down for naps, retreiving drinks for room workers, etc. Basically, I'm the "floater" who does every odd job available.

My favourite part of the day is playing with the older children in the afternoon. Today, we played soccer. I discovered I'm not great at kicking the ball (especially with hiking boots on), but I can do some fancy sliding/rolling moves to catch the ball. The kids got a kick out of that (haha... no pun intended). Now I am really sore... my body is going into rigormortis.

Julia - no, I didn't. I waited for you and Susan.

Matthew - I have to have an energetic lifestyle... a sedentary lifestyle would drive me crazy. Don't you like being physically active?

Jason - I work at church.

The thing is, I got to see you do those rolls... I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I enjoyed sitting on the stage just watching.

*laughs* Did they look impressive?

I know I startled Beth the first time I did that. She thought I hurt myself. *chuckle*

Impressive might not be quite the right word, but they were entertaining, at least! :):)
