As if life wasn't crazy enough and we didn't already have too much going on, the boys joined a swim team this week, and we've started daily practices. Yes, Alex and Ryan are now members of the Anderson Mill Barracudas.
I had originally looked into joining the Sharks team, since they are within walking distance at the Balcones Country Club, and where most of their school friends join. But the Sharks practice M-F during the summer from 10am - 12 pm, which despite not being friendly for working parents, rules out any other summer camps or mothers day out programs parents might be considering. So they will not be getting our money.
The Barracudas, on the other hand, can practice during the summer from either 8am-9am, or 7pm-8pm. Plus, two friends who used to play soccer with Alex, Reese and Andy, are also on the team, as is Andy's little sister, CeeCee. Unfortunately, in the meantime, we have three weeks before school ends when the practices are 3:45-4:30 pm. So this will be a juggling act for us, and I'll probably be ready to pull out my hair by the time May 28 rolls around.
And don't even get me started on the 6:15 am Saturday swim meets. The things we do for our children.
