I've Seen the Future...

... and I'm waiting in line.

Saturday we signed The Boy up for swimming lessons. Saturday was also the day registration opened up for all children's programs at the local community centre, so needless to say the place was packed. Parents, Grandparents, Uncles and Aunts, all waiting in line to get their children registered for something.

Thankfully they weren't all registering for Water Babies, otherwise I'd be out of luck. I thought getting up at 7:00 am was early enough, but I was way back in line by the time I arrived.

This was only the first of many things we'll likely be lining up for over the next several years. I better get used to it, and invest in a comfortable pair of shoes.
