There really is a bit of a rhythm to the year and we’re back in baseball (a little) / soccer season. We generally have Wednesdays and Sundays off this fall, save for the occasional meeting or birthday party, which offer nice, regular breaks.
Monday, before school – 4th grade math morning
Monday, after school – soccer practice for 2; This is either simultaneous or back to back. Both schedules have their pros and cons.
Tuesday, after school – swimming for 4, baseball practice for 1; This is also the most likely day for adult meetings, usually 2-3 times per month.
Wednesday – NOTHING
Thursday, after school – soccer or baseball practice for the same 1, depending on the week and the weather
Friday, after school – soccer practice for 1
Saturday – three soccer games
So, we are busy but this is generally a very doable schedule. We rely on carpools on Tuesday with the swimming/baseball time conflict. And, the Saturday soccer games move around so each week is a bit of a different puzzle.
