Family Day Activities
The first thing I did to celebrate the holiday was an exciting and productive trip to the laundromat. After recovering from that thrill I took Connor and a friend cross-country skiing. I am recovering from a cold and wasn't sure how much I was going to be able to do today but didn't want to waste such a beautiful day inside. I was aiming to do about 6 km but we probably did 8 or 9 km in about an hour and a half. The trails were icy but still pretty good. The Nordic Centre is only 2 blocks from our house and I am ashamed to say I only make it 4 or 5 times a year - most of those for free with the school. We came back home to put on proper boots and I got Tori up (at 1:50!) and took the 3 of them to McDonalds for lunch. Then Tori took the boys back to do more skiing and I stayed home to start supper. They did another 9 km and when they dropped Marcus off it was close to 6 and he was absolutely wasted. So sorry we forgot to take a camera. To make it a perfect family day I would like to finish it off with a family game night but Caitlin is still at work and Kevin is helping Connor iron his Air Cadet uniform for an inspection tomorrow night so maybe I will play solitaire!
