Ode to the Afterschool Schedule

Schedules, hectic, racing out the door
No time for dinner
Grab a Pop Tart and let’s gooooo
CLEATS! Where are your cleats? What do you mean you can only find one?
No goggles — can you swim without? It’s just a little chlorine!
Are we ready to go? Yes! Wait where’s Julia? She’s still in the house? But, we need to go now…
Dinner = whatever I can find in the pantry on a busy night.

And so it goes every night of the week in the Musings from Me on Kids, Preteens, and Teens household! Our schedule consists of multiple nights of swimming, soccer and volleyball practices, and religious classes. I might add in clarinet lessons, birthday parties, unexpected shopping trips for items that are needed the next day at school. We live, breath, and eat this schedule. The afternoon/evening schedule is our life until summer when we pick up the summer schedule…

    HA! We are always missing a shin guard. Don’t feel bad we had dinner at 8:00 on Tuesday because soccer was from 5:30 to 7:30. At least you gave yours a poptart before you left! I am struggling right now to find a routine that works for everyone in our family. Of course my work days make it harder then my days off….oh the joys of being a mom haha!
