As you know, I have a 9 year old and 6 year old twins.  My 9 year old is still playing basketball (this is her last week).  There were 2 weeks of overlap between basketball and softball.  Our twins also play softball.  I am the manager for my 9 year old and my husband is my assistant.  My husband is the manager for our 6 year olds team and I'm his assistant.  Well.....this is how our week is this week:

Monday - Basketball practice

Tuesday - Softball (9 year old) practice

Wednesday - Basketball and softball (6) practice

Thursday - Softball (9) practice

Friday - Basketball game

Saturday - Softball (9) practice and right after is softball (6) practice

I wish I can say that Sunday is my break but the league is trying to convert a baseball field into a softball field (because we don't have enough softball fields right now) so as a board member I have to be out there to help.  Thank goodness I am taking Monday off from work.

I don't know how parents of more than one child do it! My son's schedule keeps me busy enough.

Sunday - 7 pm last district hockey game

Monday - 5:20 hockey practice

Wednesday - 7:40 hockey practice

After that, the coach cancelled the next 3 practices, and so we're going to have a whole week off from practices. My son is already trying to arrange outdoor skating with some friends this weekend, but I'm not sure if it will be cold enough this weekend or if the City will stop maintaining the outdoor rinks now since it'll be March.

 I hear you!  Right now we are in between stuff so we have had some peace but next week my 12 y/o starts basketball and I am coaching and my oldest has his first track meet tomorrow.  This is part of the reason they grow so fast!
