Today has been our first "normal" Saturday in a while (in fact, it has been our first normal week in a while, too!). We all went to BubTar's baseball game, which they lost, and then KayTar and I rushed to her dance class only to find out it was canceled! The Down Syndrome Buddy Walk was today and because a large portion of the class has Down Syndrome and attends the walk, so they canceled class for the day. While we were needlessly rushing to dance class, the boys were rushing from baseball to a trial martial arts class for BubTar. He LOVED it. He gets to attend classes for free for the next month and he's got his cute little uniform and white belt, but then we're going to have to come up with the money for classes or pull him out. It is a really great workout, though, and he really enjoyed it so I hope we can find the money in the couch cushions or something. ;) As of right now, BubTar has scouts on Monday nights and baseball on Thursday night...plus games on Saturday. Martial arts can be as often as daily, but they require two sessions at least each week...so it looks like it will be a Tuesday/Wednesday night event for him...possibly Saturdays when it doesn't interfere with baseball or scouting events. Sometimes I wonder when and how we became over-scheduled, middle-aged (even though we're actually only 27) suburbanites...but such is life with kids!
After we all got home and had Subway for lunch, the kids' went to play at their friends' house for a bit, then the girls came here and the boys went out to sell popcorn together for cub scouts. The girls are sleeping over here tonight and the boys are sleeping over there. I've been studying for midterms next week while the kids are playing together upstairs...and now I'm taking a break to blog, evidently. Josh has a test to take tonight once he is back from popcorn selling, so we'll just be juggling things as usual around here tonight. We had big plans for $1 margarita date night, but it looks like that will be postponed until next Saturday. I'll probably need it more then anyway, as I'll be cramming for organic chemistry next weekend. Eeek!
You've already had tons of experience that would help make you a terrific pediatrician.
Looks like a fabulous weekend. Makes me sad I am kidless, but easier since I'm busy on call. Good luck with organic chemistry test!
Yay for normal!
normal is VERY good. You deserve a little normal
It is hard NOT to be overscheduled, even when we limit the kids to one sport plus music a season that is 6 different things going on plus most sports are not just once a week either.
my kingdom for a primary care pediatrician!
Sounds like a great weekend. Life is always a balancing act, isn't it? I feel like my #1 job description should be multi-tasker.
I bet the kiddos had lots of fun with their besties. I'm so glad they have them nearby...what a blessing!
I know it tiring but I also know you probably wouldn't have it any other way ;)
So glad BubTar is loving karate! We've been thinking about putting Cameron back in!
