Scott had Will spend the night last night and they stayed up way too late playing Mindcraft. I really have a love/hate relationship with sleepovers. I loved going to friends homes and having them at mine to have sleepovers. As a parent, I am mean for making them go to bed at a very late hour. I am also doing our entire family a total disservice when I have tired kids the next day. Scott has kinda been a pill lately. He is a great kid but is entering the years that he just wants to be with friends and knows it all. I know that this is just going to get worse as he enters pre-teen and teen years. Not looking forward to it. Anway, I am glad he had fun but not so glad about his tiredness and moods today.
We went to the pool in the morning. I thought I was coaching but it turns out I am subbing the next two Saturdays. I sub for our gym very occasional Saturday morning practices for the year round team and masters team. Usually 2-3 people show up so it is much different than what I am used. Very low key but fun to see the kids an parents I used to coach. After convincing the older kids to leave the play center and play outside (it was like pulling teeth), they ended up having a great time and I couldn't get them to leave. We eventually left and headed to Heather's to go on a bike ride.
Scott missed a 5 mile hike for Scouts and needs to do a 10 mile bike ride or 5 mile hike using a compass for navigation so we opted for a bike ride. We picked up Paisley and went 5 miles to downtown Walnut Creek. I love the Walnut Creek trails. I miss them. There are big trees, shade and I miss that. I haven't been there in years to walk around and was so impressed on what a nice remodel they did. The kids had a good time. The kids are learning bike etiquette on trails. There are a lot of us, so we need to move over and get a single file line so other bikers can pass. The boys liked going in the dirt and off road. They would look for mounds to jump and everyone had a good time. We got a pound of sees candy (thank you sara for a great christmas present), walked around and then headed back to Heathers for an easter egg hunt and chinese food. The kids had a great time on the easter egg hunt. They each had to find a golden egg that was hard to find. After we enjoyed being outside and enjoying time with cousins and my sister and jason.
I came home so tired, but wanted to chronicle the day before life gets too busy and I forget. Time for bed!
