Dedication

As I mentioned previously, we enrolled the whole family in Tae Kwon Do recently. I have discovered something... In order to keep the household going while still maintaining three different training schedules takes a lot of juggling.

Noah goes to class Monday through Thursday from 4:20 to 5:00. That works pretty well because Misty picks him up from daycare at 4:00 anyway. She can get there, get him into his uniform and to class on time as long as the daycare provider doesn't want to chat.

Misty goes to class Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 to 7:00. Again, that works out pretty well for her since she can get home from Noah's class, start supper and get changed before she goes to class.

I go to class Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7:00 to 8:00. This is where it gets a little strange. In finish making dinner and feed Noah. I usually don't eat because, lets face it, who really wants a big ol' belly full of food right before working out. Then I have to load Noah up in my vehicle, take him to the school and wait until Misty is done. Then Misty has to load him up in her vehicle and head home. Of course, when he gets there, he wants to stay.

We all really like Tae Kwon Do, so we will dedicate the time to make it work, but I have to admit that the timing is a bit of a pain. I can't imagine what it is like for those families that have multiple children in multiple sports and activities.
