I am not sure how I am going to survive being a parent of three kids and all of the activities that go with it. I am not a fan of a lot of extra-curriculars. For many reasons. However, I do LOVE our soccer program. Basically because it’s only one hour a week. That’s it. It’s more like a learn-to-play program than anything competitive. And I think that is the right focus for 3 & 4 year olds.
Our 6-week spring session started last week. Stella? She came off the field saying “Mom, I’m hungry!” Really? Then she continued…”Hungry for MORE SOCCER!” That’s her below in the orange shirt, pink shin guards and pony tail getting ready to kick the ball into the goal.
And Charlotte? She was so excited to finally be old enough to play. Unfortunately there are way too many kids in the program this session. So after about 30 minutes she was finished. Not sure if she was bored or tired or just unamused.
How do you handle activities with your kids?
Do you have “rules” about who gets to do what?
What spring sports are you on the sideline for?
