I hear ya, it's a tricky balance of too much or too little. Especially with kids our age, who's attention spans are one of a dishrag. If I had a dime for all the activities my daughter started then quit, I'd have enough to pay for the next adventure she decides on. Don't slide too far on that slope, ya might break a hip! LOL


We're the exception, not the rule, and try to protect both downtime and family time. My oldest son is in 5th grade this year and is doing more activities than ever before: 4-H (monthly meeting), Inventors Club (twice a month for an hour after school), Violin (twice a week during school year with a break around Dec./Jan.) and soccer (one practice and one game for 6 weeks in fall and spring). My 2nd grade son has soccer and Cloverbuds (4-H for younger siblings that meets when the older children meet for club). Home schooling does hold a lot of appeal to explore some extracurricular opportunities that are out there but become overload on top of the school day and homework.
