Now that summer is here we are a bit more active than usually. There’s many outdoor activities that my son loves to do that requires me to help him – i.e. swimming in the lake at my parents’ lake house, boating, riding his bike, and now our new activity of kayaking. This keeps me very busy and active, and while I love it, I still have those aches and pains associated with minor arthritis.
As you can see in the third photo we were being towed. My arms just couldn’t paddle that kayak any longer. I’m sure I could have made it, but two reasons I let the mister tow us in. I knew it would be fun because we would be able to go faster AND we had more activities to do that day and I didn’t want to wear myself out.
Most of Brody’s outdoor activities includes me helping him. If my husband can’t be there because of work, it’s up to me to make sure Brody has a fun summer. For instance, swimming at the lake requires me to climb down a ladder to get to the water. Brody won’t go in the lake unless I do. Boating, requires me to step up and over to get in the boat. I also help with teaching the kids to water ski and how to ride on a raft or inner tube behind the boat. Don’t get me wrong, I grew up doing this and I loved it. It’s just a bit more strenuous now that I’m older. My sister and I both are not in shape like we once were when we taught all of our friends how to water ski. Awe, the battles of getting older!!!
