Beth's found an activity she enjoys!

Beth on Princess

First Trot

So, after Beth trying Judo, Street Dance and Rhythmic Gymnastics. We've found something other than cycling she really enjoys (local cycling club is too far ironically to get her too *and* clashes with swimming lessons.) These are photos from her second ever horse riding lesson with the lovely Mel. Guess I'll be looking at getting her some boots soon so that she doesn't ruin her school shoes any more!

Y Fenni

I loved the ceiling hangings in the market hall
Gorgeous hills!
more gorgeous hills
key lime pie

Abergavenny is a foodies heaven! I think every other shop was selling the most diet busting of cakes! I had to go into "for the love of cake" though as it just described me to a tee!

Duracell Bunny!

That is what Rick reminds me of. Trouble is as he's 3 there is little for him to do. Most things will take him the term he turns 4. That's almost a year away!

So far he's tried

Street Dance @Dancing Diva's 50/60mins- got bored! Plus they weren't really happy having him

Judo- this he enjoys but the timings are off for us- M/W/F 6.30-8 & Sa 2-4

Gymnastics- It didn't wear him out! But he enjoyed and is going back

Street Dance @Stella Just Dance- full hour. Loved it *and* he's allowed back even though he's technically too young

Swimming- needs to be able to reach the bottom of the pool before he can take lessons but he goes weekly with Daddy any way

The reason Saturday Judo isn't so good is the swimming @10 followed by piano @12.30 at some point they need feeding! Evenings aren't so good as he's usually ready for bed around 8ish.

So we're going with Stella & Gymnastics & Swimming for now and lets see if that wears him out a little!

It's February!

Which means we're a month into 2012. And a month nearer the Olympics.

This month we're predicted a very, VERY cold snap with temperatures getting as low as -11 at night. I think it was on it's way yesterday.

Half term this month and a visit from my friend Steve is planned for the first two days. We'll add in lots of swimming. Not sure what else!
