w e d n e s d a y



September has always been one of the busiest months for us, what with the first few weeks of school and all.  This year, though, seems to be even more crammed with to-do's and various activities. Z is having netball three times a week; sometimes even four, if there is a tournament on Sunday.  Both of them still have Scouts activities --on different days, in different locations.  She insists on still doing Drama.  She's joined Battle of the Books again, as well as the Elite Recorder Club. J has his Math Club and he's also learning wing chun.  On top of all that, there's piano for both of them, too. Oh, there's also Cathechism classes on Sundays.  I get exhausted just thinking about all this.

We've asked if they were willing to give up one or two of the activities and they both gave an an adamant No.  At the end of the day, if they are enjoying the activities they've signed up for and can manage with the rest of what they need to do, we are fine with it (even though we are the ones who get really tired shuttling them around!).

Last Saturday, both their troops had a joint Scout activity.  They had their Open Water Test and did various water-related activities at Hebe Haven.  J had a dragonboat race.  Z and the other Cubs were taught how to scull a dinghy, how to heave a lifeline, and learned eight different knots.  It was hot and humid as could be, but everyone had great fun.

yes, my son and daughter-in-law and us seem to be shunting our grandies around all the time to various activities. Children have so many choices these days. But dragon boat racing! OUr family has done this for over 20 years. It is a great family sport. Last year our eldest son completed in Hong Kong (and I did years ago!). A great experience. Remember to take it easy and fun amidst the chaos of bringing up kids. :0

Sounds like a busy, busy time. Actually, when I was in the thick of my children doing activities back to back, I would be so tired also, but now that they're way into adulthood with children of their own...I would take those days back anytime. They went by way so fast. I know you enjoy and it is hard to document it all, but someday, there is rest and time to enjoy grandbabies and their activities and it is busy once more. Thanks for sharing part of your fun, busy life at Pictorial Tuesday. :)
