    Any other parents losing track of their child's diary. I have one day a week now where I don't have to ferry Steven to some activity or another.

    Monday - tennis
    Tuesday - Karate
    Wednesday -
    Thursday - swimming
    Friday - karate sparring (this is optional)
    Saturday - karate AND football
    Sunday - football

    Wednesdays are my day off except this week the dog is booked in to the vet for her boosters.

    And somewhere around all this he fits in his piano practise.



    How do you manage with more than one child?

    Wow! My parents were so lucky and they probably don't even know it. I did not belong to any sport or club. I was self-entertaining. Give me a book and I was fine.

    I'm just grateful the baseball season has come to an end as Daniel had training 3 nights a week as well as games all day Saturday and lots of tournaments in one thing or another on Sundays. Now he just has football training Wednesday nights and a match on Saturday mornings.

    Caitlin has street dancing for two hours on Tuesdays, swimming and then dancing on Wednesdays and Stagecoach for three hours on Saturday mornings (which is actually great as it means I don't have to listen to her moaning at the side of the football pitch every week :D). She has given up her freestyle dancing as that was getting to the stage of competitions every Sunday Now just the odd competition so hopefully when October gets here we will have some Sundays back - oh apart from Daniels once a month winter baseball training

    I had my own life once upon a time

    DS1 is now in third year at high school and has started his course work for his SG’s so has given up a lot of his after school stuff as he needs more time at night to study. He has joined a few lunch time clubs like the eco club and the action <st1:place w:st="on">Africa</st1:place> club, he is also in a media club and the book group, Oh and he’s a library assistant. I have no idea where he finds the time. Lol

    <o:p></o:p>
    Apart from DS2’s after school clubs everything else is a few towns away, I suppose that’s the joys of living in a little town at the back of beyond lol

    And I work in the school so I know what flyers are coming...

    Street dance, choir, football, running, violins, woodwind, brass, drama...

    And some people say kids aren't active enough.

    Blimey , I forgot , street dance, choir, ocarina, and now Matthew wants to be a footballer more than anything else.

    I really want him to do it but I just hope with his dyspraxia he will cope, I really don;t want the kids to poke fun at him. As he is left footed he would be a great addition to any side if he got any good
