Enter Winter Activities. This is the first of many steps to get my girls to try things without the safety net of their sister nearby. Because of convenience, I have always signed them up for classes together. When they were little, it didn't seem to matter as much but now they are developing their own interests.
Lucy is signed up for Tumbling and Basketball through the local park district. BB is quickly becoming her new favorite activity. We got there a bit early so she could dribble and shoot some baskets. This was her first time and I am amazed again at just how quickly this child picks up sports.

Tumbling is not quite as exciting nor is the teacher as capable. There are only 4 kids enrolled and 2 of them seem to be there only because their parents needed a place to put them for an hour. The 2 girls spent most of their time complaining about the moves and/or goofing off, nary a parent in sight. Fortunately, Lucy still seemed to enjoy herself.

(I've no doubt that things will change once I hit Publish and I may find myself eating my words and reevaluating once again how best to raise them....but for now, I've got my one glass of wine and a schedule to keep.)
