Swimming lessons are eating up the most productive part of our day! Here's how our schedule is looking:
8:30am: Housework, clean bedrooms, etc. As much as I can fit in!
9:30am: Sunscreen party! Put on a movie, do Tiger Lily's hair, get the kids into swimsuits, and get the kids and myself sunscreened. I leave plenty of time for this so it doesn't have to turn into a battle. Oh, and I am very, very grateful for spray sunscreen. We don't use it on faces, but I love that you can do the rest of a kid in about 30 seconds (once you can get them to stop squirming). We go outside to do the spray sunscreen.
10:00am: First lunch. To prevent meltdown later due to late lunch.
10:30am: Go potty, put on cover-ups, and leave for swimming lessons.
11:00am: Swimming lessons. Thirty minutes of water for the kids and reading bliss for me.
11:30am: Lessons over. Dry off shivering children, put cover-ups and sandals back on, and march back to the car. Have post-swimming lesson juice box.
11:50am: Get home. Throw everything in the washing machine. Showers/baths.
12:15pm: Second lunch.
Three days down, seven more to go.
