Back to School Activities

As Alli mentioned, I need to get back to posting every day! I'm going to work on that truly I am. I think between the miscarriage and the back-to-school stuff, I needed to step away for a bit.

All of Phoebe's afterschool and weekend activities are in full swing now. Her schedule, other than school is the following:

- Monday - off
- Tuesday - CYFF (aka CCD - Catholic education) - 6:30 - 8:00 PM
- Wednesday - ice skating group class - 7:00 - 8:00 PM
- Thursday - ice skating private lesson 5:00 - 5:40 PM
- Thursday - guitar lesson - 7:30 - 8:00 PM
- Friday - off - Family Night
- Saturday - Opera Delaware play - 11 AM - 2 PM
- Sunday - Opera Delaware play - 11 AM - 2 PM

Busy girl, eh? We have no more room for anything else. I don't think she's overloaded. We still get homework done and she has plenty of time to play with her friends, so I think this is the right balance.

Last night was "Back To School" night at her elementary school, so Leo dropped her off and picked her up for the first night of CYFF while I went and saw a sappy video in the cafeteria showing all the kids on their first day of school that made me want to cry. Then we went to visit our kids' teachers and got info on what to expect for homework this year, their schedule for the day, signup for classroom volunteer stuff and such. I do admit I like her teacher, she seems very nice. I like that the teacher does get the kids up and moving around if they seem like their attention to sitting at their desk work is waning. She mentioned it mostly for the moms of boys, but I know this works well for Phoebe too. Sometimes I find she focuses much better after she's run off some steam.

I'll decide tomorrow's topic today. Tomorrow will be how I'm trying to lose the IVF weight I gained before the next cycle.

Busy, busy young lady and you two also. I understand about needing some time away from blogland. I appreciate that and hope you have a great fall season, that's one thing I miss about the East Coast.

You are busy! : )

Girl, that is a great story about your babies! I cannot imagine what would have happened if you didn't go 4 weeks early! : )
How are you feeling?

Phoebe's sounds busy - but a good busy. I still pretty much blog daily but cut down on my time within Dailystrength - the secondary infertility community there. I found it didn't always help to talk about what isn't happening, even if it was coming from a positive place. Sometimes life has to just carry on. Suppose it's about finding the balance between sharing feelings/venting and living. We're all going to be a little different around that.

So I meant to say blog as much or as little as you want to. There are no rules. Your readers will understand. Just want you to put you first - not us (the readers) if you know what I mean. :)
