Kid Activity Schedule OMG
In the past week, all the gymnastics/dance places released their schedules for registration AND C received his travel soccer schedule. I jumped on dance registration this morning right as it opened and I’m glad I did because multiple classes are full already. FOR THE YEAR.
I realized I already basically had the entire weekly activity schedule set for the school year. Things could change, but WOW! This is a record. But I’m also happy the kids got what they wanted.
M –> everyone has one thing (2 in same place / same time – LOVE THAT)
T –> no one has anything (yet)!
W –> everyone has one thing
T –> big kids are busy (different places but times are different enough it will work)
F –> no one has anything (yet)
S –> everyone is busy (most weeks; for C depends on soccer game schedule).
I feel like this would actually work out really well – and I am grateful that there are no SUPER late activities — A has one class that ends at 8 on Thursday; C’s soccer goes to 7:15 two days/week. And having that full on break on Tuesday so that the kids can focus on homework and we just have a chill family night — would be great. I didn’t choose that or anything; it just happened!
Our nanny will definitely be helping with some of the driving. (A two-parent family could manage this if both parents were reliably home from work by ~5:30, but Josh will never have that kind of predictable schedule, that’s just part of the deal and one of several reasons we continue to have full time support).
All that said and done, I am sure the schedule is subject to change.
SIDE NOTE: one of C’s soccer tournaments is the same weekend as Big Sur Marathon which I really want to run next year — with Josh! BUT there are 10 tournaments and my neighbor (who had a kid on the same travel team last year) says it’s likely okay for him to miss some.
Big kids have just ONE more week of camp. I have to say having them gone all week does give the weekends a festive feel!
Weekend activities include piano, library, and TARGET FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES (YES ALREADY). The list came and we attacked them, in part because last year we went late and the shelves were looking quite sad.
(We will have only a week between coming home from our trip and the start of school so I’m not being THAT crazy!)
Sunday we went to Bluey Live which was cute and made G happy. She sat on my lap for most of it. It was sweet and the other 2 kids were good sports. Josh came despite being on call and didn’t even get paged – yay!
We went out to lunch in Fort Lauderdale and walked like 3 blocks in 97 degree temps. UGHHHH. (Also UGHHHHH, it’s hot everywhere!).
Anyway, it was a nice weekend. My only problem is that I never get CLOSE to enough sleep on Sunday night. I’m instituting a 9 pm bedtime policy once school starts because kids were also exhausted this morning. For now though . . . just under a month of summer left, time to enjoy it while it lasts!
