Our town has a fabulous summer rec program - dozens and dozens of short-term classes, most costing about ten bucks. So summer rec becomes our cheap entertainment every summer. The first classes began today and lets just say that Mondays and Wednesdays are going to be crazy for a few weeks. Here is the schedule:
8:00 Katherine has soccer
9:00 Katherine has dance (it's in the same place as soccer, so she can get there herself)
10:00 Rachel has ballet
11:35 Both girls have swimming lessons
1:00 Everyone goes down for a prolonged rest time!
Oh, and Katherine has play practice in the evening.
It's really not that bad. Those mornings are a bit wild, but on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays all we have is swimming and play practice. And it's only for three weeks. Then the schedule changes again.
Katherine learned to play soccer at school this year. For the past three months she has been begging to play on a team. She has never shown interest in team sports at all, so this was new. I had to break the news that team soccer, with team shirts and snacks and games every Saturday, only runs during the spring. (And no, I'm not dissappointed by that.) In the summer there is just soccer class, where you show up, practice for a while, and then play against your classmates. Not much different than PE class, but it would do. Katherine was SO excited about buying soccer socks and shin guards and could not wait for class to start.
