I'm still not back to regular blogging since spring. Dealing with the leg issue on top of semester and family demands just snowed me under. Then we moved directly into swim team and camps on top of the full slate of regular kid activities (cello, piano, gym, tennis, Karate, chess). Plus I have my training, which I try to do as much of in the wee early mornings, but it still adds to the family chaos. About ten days ago, realizing the end of summer was approaching and we'd been on the go way too much, it was time for a family meeting to decide what should stay and what should go. Robert's work schedule and demands keep him busy or gone most of the time. So we are scaling back, taking a hiatus from piano, scaling back on tennis, no organized chess for a while, and NO new activities. This is the year of just say NO and to concentrate on just a few extracurriculars. They have a lifetime to explore the others.
