I am having a difficult week. I am tired and need a break from the mom taxi service. I am happy my kids are involved in school activities and sports but I think something may have to go. Let me give you a little run down of our activities at the moment.
Quarterback Practice Tuesday - Friday 6:15 A.M. - 7:30 A.M.
School- 7:45- 3:00
Baseball Practice- 3:00 - 5:00 Monday - Friday
Basketball Practice- 5:30- 8:00 Monday - Friday (with the exception of game days)
When he gets home after 8:00 he still has to complete homework. He is taking 4 honors classes and a 10th grade Spanish . It seems the coaches expect alot from a freshman. First of all football season does not start until September. Is it necessary they have QB practice at 6:00 in the morning in January? Baseball and basketball I can understand. It is the middle of b-ball season and baseball starts in three weeks. Taylor would never complain about his 14 hour days, but I know he is exhausted. He had an away game last night and did no get home until 11:00. He then had to do homework and get up at 5:30 am for QB practice. This is just to much for a 15 year old!!! I have suggested (am almost at the demanding point) that he choose only 2 sports. He says he can not choose he loves them all.
Basketball practice and games 3 times a week.
Chorus practice Tuesday - Friday 8:00 - 8:30 am , Tuesday 3:30 - 5:00 and
Saturday 10:00- 1:00
Cheerleading Tuesday 7:00 - 8:30pm
Softball starts again in 3 weeks.
Chandler: Poor Chandler he is the baby and his activities are limited due to an already full schedule.
Basketball practice and games 3 times a week
Baseball starts in three weeks
As you can see things are hectic around here. On Saturday (my day off) we had 4 basketball games in 4 different locations, a birthday party, chorus practice, and somehow managed to even wash a load of clothes. I know I should not complain. I have 3 healthy, active kids. I am just having a bad week and feeling sorry for Taylor.
Thank you for letting me vent. I feel better now.
