Is she doing too much?

My DH, DD, & I moved to our town in Nov. this last yr & I have never lived in a town where there is this much going on for kids & families to do. This last Jan. she started rec cheer & last week she just made the Tiny Level 1 comp cheer team (which she wanted to do). Since she will be in kindergarten this next yr I decided to put her in pre-k summer school to get her a lil more prepared than pre-school had her. I also found out about this thing they do here called safety town to teach tem about water safety, electrical safety stranger danger & so on & signed her up for that as well (8 day program). Safety town ends this Friday & summer school ends in 2 weeks (she is doing so well in both). So for the last 2 weeks she has been doing summer school, cheer, & safety town but with 2 of those 3 ending soon I was thinking of putting her in swim lessons in July to help no only keep her active this summer but also help her make new friends & obviously learn how to swim, but I was wondering am I having her do too much even though she is having fun?

Heck no! Sounds like she's having an awesome summer. I honestly wish we could afford to do all that stuff with our kids. Keeps them busy and keeps them happy. Until she says she doesn't want to anymore I say let her do whatever.

I have never heard of this thing but I love it so proud my baby passed the stranger danger test today :)  I hope I can get my niece & nephew up here next summer to do this with her I think they would all love doing it together

As long as she's not cranky and she's having fun, I say go for it.  I would definitely put her in swimming.  Until someone is a good swimmer, I don't consider it an extracurricular but a life skill.

 Sounds fun as long as you all still have family time too :) I agree with the others- As long as she isnt wore down- enjoy

I don't think it sounds like too much. It sounds like a typical schedule to me.
