balance. it's tricky.

get dressed and breakfast, leave the house at 8:00 for the gym. get home at 9:45, in time to change and head to swim with friends. home at noon to grab lunch and take seneca to birthday party at 1:00. beckham naps, cooper reads and does math games, I go get the senny. coop and I play chess while the littles color. coop is off to swim team. get dinner ready, get the coopster, eat, read and run to bed. these are fun summer days, but we are not being nearly as productive as we need to be in regards to staying up with our learning activities. learning best happens in the morning, but that's also the easiest time for me to be at the gym. I think my sacrifice is leaning the wrong way and the schedule needs to adjust a bit. balance... it seems when it's finally found, it doesn't last long. it's something we're constantly striving for around here.

I've learned that I sometimes feel more balanced when I just let life happen :)

I've suspended the gym working out for the summer. I'll be swimming and running in the wee hours of the morning, instead. Balance is a little tricky, especially when maneuvering around naps and mealtimes for little people.
