Taxi Mom

I never thought that I could be described as such - but alas it is so. Our family went from over a year of almost no outside activity to CHAOS! It started with son #2 wanting to play football. We went ahead and let him go out for the local middle school team. He has practice every weekday from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Son #3 is signed up for swimming lessons that take place every Tuesday and Thursday for the next four weeks at 7:00 pm. Now son #1 is taking Drivers Education classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the next 5 weeks. So this is how my afternoon goes:
Leave the house at 2:15 pm and drop son #2 at the Middle School for football practice. Return home at about 2:45. (luckily everything is pretty close). Leave home at about 3:35 pm to take son #1 to Driver's Ed. Return home about 4:15. Leave home at about 4:50 to pick up son #2 at the middle school. Return home about 5:15pm. Leave home at about 5:45 to pick up son #1 at Drivers Ed. Return home at about 6:15. (on Wednesdays we will leave from Drivers Ed to go to bible class) On Tuesdays and Thursdays - Leave home at 6:50 to take son #3 to Swim Lessons, return home about 7:45 pm. Hopefully I will be able to stay on top of all of this - add to it, parent meeting for football, and scheduling drive time with the Drivers Ed school. Swimming stops in 4 weeks, drivers ed in about 5 weeks and football at the end of October and then we should be back to our normal hum drum schedule.
