Sport Free Winter!

As much I as like to watch my boys play sports, I'm so glad we have 3 months of no sports until baseball starts up in March.  We really could use the break, although I'm sure that boredom will be setting in with the kids back in school and Christmas over. 

How do you spend your time when it's not taken up with activities?

We aren't offically doing sports this winter but both are signed up for classes at the Y. If I didn't it would be a challenge to get DH up off the couch :) For the boys I do it so they aren't stir crazy inside. Snow from last month all melted and lets face it its just not fun to playout side when its cold if there is no snow. I don't care as much if they are couch potatos somewhat over the weekend. We have long days and my oldest gets extra curriculars in afterschool but I go stir crazy. DH would be content never leaving the house all weekend especially right now with football play offs but I need to get out and this way I am less likely to go shopping. Yesterday I even managed to get in a workout at the Y while my oldest had his flag football.

Spring is going to be odd for us. We didn't think my oldest could play baseball because of a medical issue but Dr cleared it and now he doesn't want to. He flip flops but while Dr said its ok DH and I are teetering so thinking maybe we just skip this year. My youngest can do tball but thats like going from everynight to everyweekend. Will feel weird and as much as running around sucked I think I will miss it and I got the super cool shade chair and everything for this season that may not be...

Enjoy the break! The practices alone take up SO much free time!

That's a hard decision to make about your oldest, but I'm sure that you'll the right one. I'm already getting sucked into baseball a bit since I'm on the board, although not as bad as nightly practices. I made myself a new blanket for all those cold days that I get to sit through. It's two layer fleece, I was going to do baseballs on one side and soccer balls on the other and decided the heck with it. I did something girly since I have enough boy stuff in my life ;)
