Gym timeCampbell County YMCA
Thursdays starting Nov. 4th
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Laura P. writes: Okay, I finally have coordinated a gym day with the Campbell County YMCA. It will be on Thursdays, from 2 to 3 pm, beginning on November 4. It will be $2 per child up to a max of $5 per family. We will have access to all of the Y's sports equipment, including balls of various types, hockey stuff, parachute, mats, bats, flags, jumpropes, hoops and cones. This is a great way to let the kids use up some energy in the cold, wet months we have ahead, as well as a great opportunity for homeschool parents to get to know each other. If anyone is interested in organized games and wants to take the lead, that would be welcome as well. Another thought might be the Presidential Fitness Program. All of theses ideas (and more) can be discussed at will during the Thursday gym time.

The Campbell County Y is located in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky (right across the river on I-471). Take I-471 South to the Ft. Thomas/Southgate exit. Turn left at the end of the exit ramp (if you are coming from somewhere in Kentucky and are on I-471 North you will need to turn right at the end of the ramp). Turn left on Grandview (it will be the 3rd stoplight - ??) When you get to the stop sign, turn right onto Ft. Thomas Blvd/Ave. The Y will be about 1/4 mile down on your right. Feel free to call me if you have any questions: Laura P. or Julieanne

After we attended the program at Woodland Mound, we grabbed lunch at Frisch's and then decided (or I should say the boys decided) that we would join our friends at the Campbell County YMCA for gym time. The boys had wanted to play with their friends at the park, but it was too wet so this was the perfect alternate activity.

The kids ran around like the wild children that they are, playing basketball, using hula hoops and just goofing around while the moms (Julieanne, Michelle and me) sat around and talked. It is so nice to spend time with other homeschooling moms while the kids are busy playing and entertaining themselves!

The boys and Sophie really enjoyed themselves so we will probably be heading back in a few weeks (since they won't meet next week because of Thanksgiving).
