Let 'em run!

Let 'em run!When you live somewhere that is cold in the winter, where snow is a way of life, where cold is sometimes too bitter to have the kids out long enough to wear off enough energy, you start looking for venues to let the kids run. I probably let my kids run in places others might not, but sometimes you just have to!

This weekend, though, they got to run in a space that was designed for it. We went to a paper airplane "fly in." They got to learn about airplanes, how to fold paper airplanes (though Kiddo has so many in his repertoire that he didn't really even stop at that table!), and then play some games with the planes, in addition to flying them about the large field house.

The best part, though, was the space to RUN! And run they did. Kutey seemed to think that the track oval was the best thing ever. She was in her own little world, running lap after lap, and loving every minute of it. All told, we figure she ran well over a half mile. For a not quite four-year-old, that is big!

What a wonderful idea! The activity sounds like fun too! It looks like you could fly some pretty large paper airplanes there. :o)
