Before I picked the kids up from school, I decided I better write out my afternoon schedule. Without a master plan, there was a great danger of me forgetting someone or something. This is what it looked like:
2:45 Get kids
3:30 Put lasagna in the oven
4:00 Josh to scouts
4:15 Savannah to activity days
4:45 Jonah to basketball
5:00 Pick up Savannah; Josh rides bike to basketball
5:15 Garlic bread in the oven
5:45 Pick up Jonah; send Becca on bike for Josh
5:55 ish Dinner/quality family time
6:20 Caleb to scouts at ice rink
6:50 Becca and me to mutual
8:00 Caleb gets a ride home
8:30 Me and Becca home
I am proud (and perhaps a bit surprised) to report that nobody was late to anything! That is especially surprising considering that I got 3 calls from kids’ friends needing last minute rides to various activities. And I even had time to search for lost shoes and water bottles, and time to run to Walmart for a new basketball!
I’m glad I have a whole week before Wednesday rolls around again.
