It’s Fun To Play at the YMCA

YMCAI’ve never belonged to a YMCA before, but this year I was moved to join because it was the only organization that offered affordable swim lessons for the boys at a time that accommodated our schedule.  You can buy a full membership or a cheaper membership that allows you to enroll in various programs, aptly named a “program membership,” which is what we bought for each kid.  Now that summer is over and after-school activities are all the rage, I’ve dipped a tentative toe in the busy pond by enrolling Kid 1 in a weekly fitness class for kids called Children F.I.R.S.T.  It’s an hour-long session of learning about their bodies, doing fun exercises, and games that help build self esteem.  Soccer or martial arts can wait until next year.

All Moved In

Moving Day

Our family has landed in Agoura Hills.  We’ve been here for three months now, and we’re starting to meet the locals more and more.  Kid 1 is in Kindergarten, Kid 2 is a preschooler.  Mom works part-time for a video production company, part-time as a blogger and web editor, and full-time as Mom.  Dad is a professor at a local university.

These are our stories.  Welcome.
