What's going on for you this week?

I'm scrambling to get the programs and place cards printed for my sister's wedding by next Wednesday. And this week is a consignment sale in my area that I usually participate in. I volunteered yesterday, dropped off my kids clothing this morning, and later this evening is the actual sale. It's a lot of work but I'm hoping to make at least $200. We've been working on putting up a swingset for the kids, I'll share pictures once it's done! That's my life this week. How about you?

Sounds great, Lizzy. Good luck at the consignment sale. I wish we had something like that here, I would've participated. I tried & tried selling my kids clothes on Craiglist, Kijiji, and ads in my building and it just didn't go. I ended up having a volunteer from a women's shelter come and pick them all up. Didn't make any $$ but it went to a good cause. But I'd even have loved to SHOP at a consignment sale! Sounds nice.

No special plans this week. We have a long weekend coming up so I am looking forward to that!

The usual! Trying to sort and declutter this house! Babysitting today. Running kids to school, soccer, (ballet is DONE for the year, YAY!), piano, etc. I'm almost done repainting the kitchen. Next I'll be painting 2 kids rooms - one for girls and one for boys. I need to find some more dressers and another bunk bed.

Shawna, what age do you start those kinds of activities (dance, sports)? Nathaniel will be three in a couple of months, I'm wondering if I should find a little class for him to participate in. He'll be doing preschool a few hours a week though so I don't want to jump into too many things at once. Although, I was thinking of doing swim lessons with him again, he really liked it last Fall but he wasn't quite old enough to learn very much.

Lizzy, have you looked into gymnastics for Nathaniel? Natasha has been going since she was 2 (tumbling toddlers, ages 1.5-3), so for about 8 months now and she loves it, she learned so much. It's a parent & tot class, but from the age of 3, they go to the next age level without a parent. I might be looking into swimming too. Ballet here is from age 4.

I know Nathaniel would LOVE that. I looked into it briefly last summer for the fall, but Mary was so little and I didn't know what I'd do with her while Nathaniel was in the class. Maybe this coming fall it might be fun to try, thanks for reminding me about it!

No problem. My mom used to watch Veronika when I took Natasha during weekdays; now she attends Sunday mornings so DH watches her. I think when Veronika is 2ish, I will register her as well, since Natasha will be in the older group by then. They actually have more boys than girls in her gym class, I am sure he'd love it!

They all started around 3. Francis started ballet then, Sam started soccer. At 3, I think one little activity is enough, as long as it's something they think is fun. In the summer, we also do swimming lessons for 2 weeks straight starting at 3.
