The first day of the year is always a slow, lazy one. I stay in my pj's until the afternoon, and I putter. A little knitting, some TV time with the boys, or perhaps even a little "sit and do nothing" time. But we had to cure some cabin fever and it was pretty nice out for a January day in New England, so we went off to do some shopping. When we got home, the boys still had some energy to burn. So hey, why not run around the backyard for a little bit?
And if there's sidewalk chalk too, then that's great. :)
