Ha! I've been on here for weeks and just realized that everyone's names are off the screen if my phone! I'll get it guys, I will. Otherwise I guess Panda can explain it to me. Ha ha.
Anna1111, I really appreciate your advice regarding sports and burning out but we aren't really adding any new nights to our sports schedule. He is a healthy, active 7 year old that NEEDS winter activities and sports. Okay, so maybe I need him to have them, lol. I just went elsewhere for the activities and took the leap of putting him in with a larger age range of kids (6-12 instead of 7-9)... hopefully he learns things like responsibility and not bad words... although I probably need to anticipate a little of both, right? : )
Non-academic, free-awesome, didn't know I could check that box, ha! Seriously though, he's coming out of Catholic school, uniforms, long days, structure, sit still, be quiet, not now, wait in line, no flexibility environment (which definitely has a lot of really great qualities for a lot of kids) to a well, I'm kind of the opposite of that. I think he needs to have some fun, go bowling, bouncing, do it now, dig for bugs (not my favorite but...) & ask all 42 of his questions about how a clock works. Right? Granted I apparently cut class for 2nd grade, lol, but when did it become so stressful? And not fun? Sorry, totally off my point. That's good advice though. I'll have to be careful that I not get too exuberant... & staying focused!
I'm pretty excited about all the education I'll get too! About how old is your little one?
No sweat! I've got this... & we'll figure out the rest!
