Sometimes we wake up early...
Tuesday is going to be one of those long busy days for us this semester. The middles have an English Literature/writing class at 9:00am on Tuesday mornings.
We normally work out on Monday and Wednesdays at 8:30 but we can roll out of bed, throw on work out clothes and shower afterward for that. Plus, it's only right down the street.
This class requires about a 25-30 minute drive in morning street traffic. It also requires normal clothing. No, it doesn't. But *I* as mom require normal clothing to be worn. No 'joggers' workout capris. Haha!
SO! That means up, clean, dressed, and teeth brushed before we walk out the door. This is early for us. It's like, like, like....getting ready for outside school! Dun, dun dun!
After writing class, it's off to guitar for Bird and Kurtis. This is Kurtis first experience with music lessons. He begged and begged last year but the music studio said he couldn't start until he was 6. They think many 5yo can't handle the conditioning on the fingers. Now, here we are and he seemed to have changed his mind. After some discussion, it turned out, he was afraid he would be left in the 'çlass' alone "with out his family." This is a reoccurring fear that I am working on with him. I reassured him his siblings or I would be there at the studio while he was having his lesson, so he then agreed.
I work a few hours on Tuesday afternoons and by evening, it's Sam's turn again--dance class. Whew! I intentionally try to schedule errands/outside classes on one day but it doesn't always work out that way. We all have other classes and activities through out the week bu it looks like Tuesdays is going to be our heaviest day. We make it work!
