Both, actually. We’ve officially entered the month where, in years past, the girls and I would begin tapering off of the school routine, playing a lot more, and relaxing. As we’re still on the schedule for the two-day/week school, we still have three weeks to go. Three weeks full-steam ahead. Mayday, Mayday!
Other signs of May for us include extra rehearsals/practices for everything we’re involved in, making the evenings a really fun time to navigate and bringing a whole new meaning to playing “parenting tag” with Craig. Usually everything has a once a week practice/rehearsal, or in the case of school, twice each week. Here are our next three weeks:
- This week: school, ballet, choir, school, choir, ballet, ballet recital – ballet done!
- Next week: school, choir, school, choir, choir performance – choir done!
- Third week: school, school performance, school, school picnic – school done!
Also sandwiched in here are three phone conferences for Classical Conversations (I’m starting a group for next year, so I have to go through training), a third-of-a-semester’s worth of Ancient and Medieval Church History for Craig, three graduations to attend, two graduation parties, and the possibility of a whole family check-in to the local psych ward.
To say I’m giddy about four weeks from now is a serious understatement. We just have to tuck our heads and run through the next three weeks to get there. Wish us luck.
