Aaaahhhh.... To Be Learning Again.... the past two days I went to karate class and bowed on with the black belts. We did katas, with and without weapons, and did grappling. I learned that I really want to start wearing my gi top to class, no matter how hot it is....mat burns on my elbows weren't fun. But I also learned how it feels to be learning again. The part where you're humbled because you're looking a bit like a foal learning to walk, bumbling about just trying to keep up. And the part where things finally start coming together....still so much to learn, yet enough to where I can practice at home. Excited.

....the kids have the day off on Friday, and we waited to the last nanosecond to arrange for care. So I've arranged to work late the next few nights, work a bit from home on Friday, and work a bit on Saturday. We'll see how it rolls. The kids are excited about me being home with them on Friday, though, so we'll see if we can fit some fun in someplace. I shall take some suggestions for all three of you who read me on a regular basis....... Come on, delurk and give me some ideers.... *winks*

I vote for the zoo! Always a hit here in the House of Bean. If you want really cheap, the free play area at the mall...if you can make it out without buying anything. I usually can...unless we go through Target.

We are due for a trip to the library so that's my suggestion. Have fun!

Oh and if you run into a snag like this again, give me a call, I'm usually available.

Bounce Zone is good, but $6.50 a person, and you may want to call in advance as they will not let you in if they are too crowded.

Movies are good. I don't know what is at Cinema Grill at lunchtime.

My kids like to get a dozen donuts at Dunkin Donuts, I let them pick out and eat the whole dozen. They don't eat them all at once, but will eat their 6 each in the course of a day.

Cool Creek has a craft of the day activity, and you can hike there. I don't know what is in the butterfly house right now.

I have a Conner Prairie pass I could give you so you could all go for free.
