Ready! Set! Go! Activities
Last Thursday night was the Boy Scout open house. Yesterday, ballet began for Princess. We eased into school about a month ago. Now the activities are beginning. Neither of my children are over committed, but they usually participate fully in their chosen activities. Ballet lessons are in the city, so a one hour lesson is a half a day and some of the evening ordeal in which I try to shove as much shopping, visiting (my sisters), and library as possible. Auditions for The Nutcracker are Saturday. I may be off the hook. Princess mentioned that she may not want to participate. I told her she had until Friday evening to decide. Nutcracker is a huge time commitment. I am always proud when I see her in such a big production, but would be thankful if we didn't have to do the drive and the umpteen million rehearsals. She is young enough that her participation is not that important. I won't interfere either way. I promise.
