At the end of what is often a long day of taking care of the kids, cooking, cleaning, etc. it's so nice to do something different. Lately that has been playing basketball. I'm playing on a rec league with girls from our ward and a neighboring ward. Sometimes the games don't start till like 9:15 and when your kids wake up at 6 and there are some feedings in the night, 9:15 feels real late. But it's always so worth it---I have a blast and it's great exercise. I seem to be on the floor a lot though and have acquired some lovely bruised knees and elbows. Very ladylike.
And back on the subject of doing something I enjoy after the kids go to sleep...I really like to make things. It seems that I only finish one project every other month or so, but it's just nice to be working on something. Here is a little "bouquet" I made for Natalie's room.
She likes it.
