V-Sit and Reach

Anyone required to do this in gym class as part of the presidental fitness challenge or something or other? You have to do pull ups, sit ups, the shuttle run, the mile run, etc.? For the V-sit and reach you basically sit in a pike position with your feet about 6 inches apart and reach as far as you can between your toes. Meanwhile two of your classmates are pressing down on your knees to ensure that you don't bend them. It was an extremely bizarre way to measure flexibility.

But moving on. I was looking through pictures the other day and I came across this one where Timothy looks like he may be practicing his v-sit and reach. In reality he is contemplating the bears that are on the feet of his pjs, but for some reason v-sit and reach popped into my head. The picture is also entertaining because the three of them seem so content, each with their own activity. Anyway, just thought I would share.

Mark Redeemed

Mark definitely deserves a shout out. We all know that he is a super amazing, loving, caring father. BUT he has really outdone himself by assiting Timothy with earning a "best dressed" award at school. That's right. The other day upon picking Timothy up from school Mark was greeted by a picture on the door, which honored Timothy with the best dressed award. Timothy got his award for the "dress like a cowboy day," a day on which Mark was completely responsible for dressing Timothy. (Who am I kidding Mark is responsible for dressing Timothy 99% of the time). Great job Mark -- and great job Timothy for really pulling off the look -- not many 6 month olds can take on the cowboy look.

As some of you may recall, I called Mark out several months ago for a rather "busy" outfit that he put together. My bad Mark -- you are redeemed.

So Proud!
