Last week Tracy's gymnastics class had camera day where they invite the parents in at the end of class to take some action shots.

I want to see your weekly schedule. It seems you guys do a lot of activities! Is it hard getting everywhere?

We got creamed during baseball season. TaeKwondo suffered. We normally maintain an okay balance. It's going to get harder if all three kids actually decide to pick up seasonal sports (like soccer, baseball, etc) with practices and games.

Right now its Mon: Andrew computer game programming class
Tues: Andrew and Tracy Taekwondo Wed: Tracy Gymnastics Thurs: Andrew and Tracy Taekwondo Fri: free
Add in once or twice a month Boy scout and Girl scout meetings.
It's working fine now. During baseball season adding 2 practices and a game each week to that schedule just didnt work. We dropped to TKD once a week. And for most of the baseball season Andrew's computer class hadnt started yet so we could do TKD on mondays and baseball t-th-sat. Luckily TKD is flexible days.

I try to always keep it down to one activity a day. The kids sometimes have girl scouts or boy scouts meetings thrown in there, but those are only once or twice a month.

Ok, trying to write this all out does make it seem busy, but we have fun.

I dont pressure my kids at all, in fact I have to make them NOT sign up for all the things they want to sign up for.

Right now Loren goes to regular preschool MWF and gymnastics preschool TTh so she doesnt need any afterschool stuff on top of that. Then it will get complicated to add her in the mix!

Ya. my parents kept me in lots of classes too, but it was just me doing the activities. I can imagine having more than one kid doing activities would take a lot more organization!
