I always watched other parents in amazement. Gymnastics on Monday, swim Tuesday, Boy Scouts on Wednesday, Karate on Thursday and T-Ball on Saturday, and that is just for one kid. Imagine now you have multiple kids and unless they are all doing the same things (unlikely) and they are all the same age (more unlikely) then you have to double up the schedule. This has never been a problem until now for me because Zachary is still young enough to where his activities are not so well rounded but Eli is a different story.
Eli now has swim, T-ball and is joining Cub Scouts. With T-Ball now encroaching the weekdays with games on Thursdays this leaves a lot of running around: Monday is swim, Wednesday is Boy Scouts, Thursday and Saturday are T-ball. Add make up games, Jodi’s hectic soccer schedule (practice on Monday and Friday nights) and weekend games there just isn’t enough time to sit and relax. Recently I have had to trim things out of my schedule like Masonry. Thursday nights used to be my meeting nights, now lodge is just a passing thought (a shame).
I want Zach to start taking swim also, that way he is comfortable around and in the water this summer. I need to speak to Jodi about that. I also want Eli to start playing soccer! I guess I have to wait until I am older to slow down a bit because it looks like I am going to moving at a faster pace over the next ten years!
