My grandson's came over to spend the night at my house. I got them early this afternoon. I met my daughter part way so neither of us had to do the full drive. Walking to my car, my 5 year old walked over a pile of snow that had turned to ice and face planted right into the ice. He got a light road rash and some little cuts on his lips. Thank goodness my daughter was still with us. It happened so quickly. Her husband said, "Why was he walking on the ice?" My daughter responded, "He's a boy!" She is a pediatrician so she doesn't over react.
We got to my house and they were disappointed because my 18 year old son wasn't there. My husband and son had gone to run some errands. They kept asking when they were coming home.
They guys came home an hour later. They played for a while and then we went to get something to eat. After dinner, my son, wanted to go to the high school gym and play basketball. My husband has keys to the gym so they can use it. My son had 16 or so high school boys there to play. They let the almost 10 year old play with them. They were playing 4 on 4. My grandson thought he was something, playing with the big boys. I stayed for an 1 1/2 hours and my husband and I played with the little one. We shot baskets and had races. Believe it or not, the little one won every race! He was ready to go back home and play with the dog. I took him home and he played for a little while and the wanted to watch The Incredibles. I wasn't going to argue with that.
I did exercise before they came over this morning. I probably didn't need to, I got plenty of exercise in the evening. I still need to work harder on my diet. They'll be around most of the day Sunday before they go home, so tomorrow will be active for all of us too! I just wish it was warm enough to enjoy playing outside. It's March are we are running about fifteen degrees below average. We have another big snow storm coming in next week. Will spring never come?
