Well, my kids have hit "that" age.  I'm now a REAL soccer mom; lol.  My boys(6 and 4); are both doing a soccer clinic which started last night.  Plus my oldest is in Kindergarten all day, and goes to an after school program 2x a week(mon and fri).  My youngest is in preschool for 3 hours 2x a week(tues and thurs).  I do a "Kinder and You" music program with my youngest on Wednesdays, and my oldest started piano lessons this afternoon.  His piano teacher  is encouraging me to figure out a day that I can bring my oldest to school about 30 minutes early, and he will do additional work with him then.

At the end of the month my boys will each be starting baseball.  Oldest will have practice from 4:30-7 on M,W,F; youngest is 4:30-7 on T and Th.

Oh, BTW; I'm taking two college courses; one online, one face to face....and have the F2F class on T and Th from 6:30-9:30.

With a deployed husband.

I think I will lose my mind.  LOL

I figure that keeping myself busy(albeit EXTREMELY busy) will make the rest of this deployment hurry by.  Or at least hurry these next few months until I get to go back to the states for the summer!

I'm just worried about keeping my GPA up.  LOL  So far it hasn't droppped below 3.74......hopefully I don't spread myself too thin here.

Yup! And it only gets worse!

My oldest alone is in dance class, she has a lead role in their school play (practice is 6pm -9or 10 pm every night right now), she is also starting tennis practice in a few days.

The other 2 have church school and baseball practice.

 

A few years ago dh was working out of town on some side job he got. I had our 3 kids, 2 full itme daycare kids and 4 before and after schoolers. Then I also had to run his computer store and fix the computers while he was gone! The girls still had dance classes and my son had preschool.  It was nuts! But you just take it one day at a time.

It sounds to me like you have over scheduled yourself and your children. We just talked about this in MOPS this morning, our topic was living in Margin. One good thing our speaker brought up is that activity overload takes away the joy of the activity. Good luck with everything.
