One, we can't afford it. Two, we already have G in school 5 hours a day, M in homeschool group, that's 2 five hour days a week. And getting G to speech 2 times a week, that's a lot of stuff. Three I'm the primary president and cannot get overbooked. Four, we're having a lot of fun together.
I would like the kids to do martial arts when they are older, like 8 and 10. P is generally against this violence, but I've convinced him that it's like dance, but without the sexy. We would like M the strong to someday play volleyball. For better or worse she says cute things like "If I grow a foot taller than daddy, I'll get a scholarship." There is an organization north of town that starts girls in volleyball at age 12.
So in general we've decided to let the kids enjoy their childhood and do a bunch of different activities for 1 year each. I don't see how we'll keep them from having the attitude I hated to see in students "Oh, I know how to do that..." Maybe I'll teach them to say "My parents let me do that for 1 year, it was fun."
When they're 14 I think they get to decide what they want to seriously play/do. There is so much they can do, especially with the beach.
x-ne on the dancing, cheerleading, shake your money maker-ing.
Also, we're busy building racetracks on the moon.
And lP is busy perfecting her funny faces,
and falling asleep on books.
