C. went home today, so we can't do go to the hotel this afternoon. I've told the kids that we can go to the gym's pool instead and they seem interested in that idea. Today is also T.'s first gymnastics lesson, so it will be a busy afternoon.
T. had his first "share" in kindergarten and we forgot it of course, but his aide had him talk about his bicycle, which is funny because he's categorically refused to get on it for months now. However, after that "share", he went to the basement and extracted the old and new balance bikes and has been using them both. This is a ton of fun, however, it's less compatible with having both kids out, because A. is really, really slow on her balance bike. She'd gotten pretty fast on the scooter and we could do joint outings; I'm not sure what we'll do with no one here in the afternoon to help her out while T. and I ride our bikes.
I also took T. down to the model railroading place in West Acton for the first time in a long while and having been there once, the second and third visits have been eagerly anticipated. Their schedule is limited, so we can't do that every day either.
I used part of my 2 years worth of dividend check from REI to buy A. a bicycle with training wheels (an Electra, of course!); it should be ready for pick-up in the next few days.
