I don't really feel like we put our children into too many activities. The ones that they participate in are all areas where their interests lie, and/or it's good for them. It's just the fact that we have four children participating in different activities, that kind of bogs us down. It's funny, now that all four kids are in school during the week, Chris was wondering what I will do with all of my free time. It is nice, i have to admit. I have 4 hours, three days a week to myself! My big plans are exercise, cleaning the house and going grocery shopping. By myself! But other than that, here's our schedule.
Monday: School, Michael-OT, Sam- Tae Kwon Do
Tuesday: School/Preschool, Molly- Ballet/Tap
Wednesday: School/Preschool, Molly-Soccer Practice, Sam- Tae Kwon Do
Thursday: School/Preschool, Michael- Gymnastics, Sam, Cub Scouts 2x per month
Friday: School for the big kids, but other than that, NOTHING. Thank goodness!
Saturday: Sam Tae Kwon Do, Molly Soccer
You may notice that Ben has no extracurriculars. That's because he's the fourth born, and his extracurricular activity is watching his siblings participate in extracurricular activities. And he is becoming quite the little tap dancing ninja who likes to kick balls!
