The Great After School Activity Struggle
Summer is fading. Fast. We are finding ourselves enjoying the cooler nights. We’ve switched the window air conditioner from cool to fan in our daughter’s room. The line for ice cream is a little shorter. The conversations on the sidewalk with neighbors have shifted from weekend vacation plans to school supply lists. Nights are spent online researching after school activities.
“Let’s sign her up for ukulele!”
“Good idea! She would love that!”
“It’s at 3:40. School gets out at 3:30, do you think that’s enough time?”
“Yeah, you could make it, but it might be tight.”
“Would she even like ukulele? She’s only four.”
“Yeah, you’re right. Maybe next year.”
