Our schedule has gone from crazy to insane. At the end of Chase’s 3rd gymnastics class last week the teacher pulled me aside and said that he recognizes talent when he sees it. He said that he had talked with one of the other instructors and he thinks Chase needs to be moved up to a training team. I just can’t believe that this is happening so soon. I am excited, but nervous. He is so little and has no fear and I don’t want him to get hurt. Starting today he will be going twice a week for an hour and a half and will be training with 4 other boys that are around his age. We had to move Blake and Chase’s catechism classes to a different day. The same day as Andrew’s football games. I don’t know how we are going to pull this off really. We are taking it week by week. Now Ken has to pick up Andrew from football on Chase’s gymnastics days instead of me. Andrew will be eating his dinner warmed up in the microwave while Ken is at football with Blake and I am at gymnastics with Chase. Of course Karli goes wherever I go. Sometimes I can’t help but wonder how in the world we thought we were going to be able to pull off having 4 kids. I know they don’t all have to be playing sports and such and we create these situations ourselves. I do feel like my life revolves around my kids activities most of the time, but that is what we have always wanted – a big busy family. I feel grateful that our kids are able to do so much and are athletic and interested in doing more than sitting around doing nothing all day.
On the way home from gymnastics last week Chase asked me if I still have my gold medal. I was like, huh? Here he had told his gymnastics teacher that I have an Olympic medal! OH my! I told him that I never said that I was in the Olympics. I had told him that I had competed in gymnastics when I was about 12 years old and obviously he got a bit confused. Funny!
