There isn't as much on my plate lately as I'd like there to be, well...that is if you're talking about what's for dinner. Kevin and I are in the middle of a feisty competition with 10 of our friends. It's having an impact on how we sleep, what we drink, and when we eat. Seriously, calling it a challenge is just scratching the surface. Yet, we find ourselves feeling better than we have in a LONG time.
Anyway, as the back to school season heats up so does our schedule. I love to be involved. I rarely say no.
With Gavin starting school there are even more wonderful opportunities to get involved in. Our September calendar just might scream if I try to squeeze one more thing into her little, not so blank, boxes. (Did I just personify my calendar? Well, yes, it appears I did. She and I - we are pretty close friends). So, I suppose that means my plate is pretty full.
This week we kicked off our first (only??) season as the kindergarten team soccer coaches. What did I get us into this time!!
My scheming buddy and I met today to set up a schedule and plan preschool curriculum for our trial run at an in home co-op.
I was very encouraged by our recent parent orientation night and look forward to the start of another school year at Cherry Lane, where I will continue to serve on the parent board.
Tonight we are going to get back in the swing of all things "Friday Family Night" by introducing our new plan for moving our children's routine from chaos to order (now, that's a big order!). But, disciplined kids=happy families...right?!?! We are really excited about sharing the Champ Ladder, a little bit of pizza, and a few games of Uno.
Princess Pip has gathered all of her pretty pink gear for her first attempt at dance classes. We are looking forward to sending her to a program hosted by the local recreation department. The class is a mix of dance techniques and gymnastics training.
There are also parties, festivals, home shows, field trips, meet the teacher nights, open houses, birthday celebrations, and "quick fit in before summer ends" activities. We all have something to look forward too.
And to think I was itching to go back to teaching the fall to get us into better routines...
What's on your plate?
Grab your fork because it seems fall is coming to fill you up!
