Whipping him into shape

On Saturday, Liam had his second hockey practise. It will take some getting used to, this twice-a-week activity. (On a side note, if you're like me and you bitch about how expensive hockey is, think of it this way: last year we paid something like $165 for Liam to go to a half-hour skating lesson once a week. This year we spent $450 on hockey, but it's twice a week for 50 minutes each time. He's spending nearly 4 times as much time on the ice. So I guess the cost is justifiable.)On Saturday morning, we rode bikes to the park and played tag. On Saturday afternoon, we went down to the creek to feed the ducks and geese, and Liam pulled Mallory in the wagon the whole way there and almost all the way back. And then, at 3 p.m., Liam got on the ice and I'm sure you can see where this is heading - he barely had enough energy to keep upright.Somehow he made it through the entire hour, but from now on I think we will make sure that our Saturday mornings are pretty laid back and don't involve so much physical exertion. The poor kid!
