F Made a Basket and a Frugal Dinner

January 13th, 2016 at 11:54 pm

We leave in 5 minutes for indoor soccer practice; we bought indoor shoes for F because she was slipping last week and there are several more practices (2 per week all month) AND the team decided to do indoor league in February. The shoes were on sale and the best part: they can be worn as regular shoes, too!

Last night was basketball; it was F's first game ever and she made a basket! It's a co-ed team and the boys aren't too great about passing to her, but the moms were all screaming, "Pass it to F!" She was in exactly the right place all the time (she has a knack for positioning). So one boy passed it to her, and she took the shot and made it in. After that, a lot more of her team-mates were passing to her... she made some awesome passes, too! I'll call it a success.

The hard part about all the sports is working out when to have dinner.

Last night the game was 6:30 so we ate first (tostadas). Tonight, we'll eat afterward - asian meatballs that are cooking away in the crockpot and rice (in the rice cooker).

The other thing is exercise. I designed a little 20 min. workout that we can do while the girls practice soccer - I had to modify my circuit workout because we can't (won't!) touch the disgusting floor where they practice. My friend T does the workout with me and I texted her to remind her to bring a jumprope and little weights. I love T; she is a wonderful person and a great friend, and she does these silly workouts with me! She's the one who ran with me around the horse track when soccer practice was outside.

OK, time to go... I am taking F and her friend G tonight... G's mom dropped her off because she has three kids, and it's hard to schedule. It takes a village, right? (And F is so happy to have G, and G is so happy to be here with F; they are gabbing and giggling... awesome girls!)
