Keeping the kids busy, maybe too busy

Katherine 9/9/03 – Katherine started her after school activities this week. Yesterday was chess and she came home beaming. It seems she won her first game, playing against a 4th grader. She was deservedly pleased with herself and as parents, of course we were thrilled. Today is Tae Kwon Do and we’ll see how that goes. I really don’t think she knows what she’s getting into.

We realized that we really wanted her to take piano lessons as she has an excellent ear and has begun picking out church tunes and playing music with both hands that actually makes sense. But there’s just no time around what she already has scheduled. Ian and I are secretly hoping she’ll ask to drop TKD, but I don’t know if we’re being realistic. This will still allow us to search for a piano teacher for Rebecca. If we are going to a French speaking post next, which is most likely, we’ll also be looking for a French teacher for the kids.

I still need to register for Brownies and Daisies. The Brownies troop forming here in the village is small and will be lead by someone we know. She's out of the country for a bit, so it seems that another mom and I will be starting up the troop over the next few weeks until the real leader returns. I have no clue!
