Balancing Act

When we arrived in NYC from Newfoundland, we had exactly one day to unpack and adjust before our schedule kicked in. In retrospect, this was not enough time. I struggle to find the right balance between activity and quiet, and it gets complicated quickly when one is homeschooling two children. Last year, I aimed for a "less is more" schedule and I found that Finn and Lucy were a bit bored. So, this year, we signed up for all sorts of great things but we are being run ragged. The problem is that everything is great--we love it all. So what to give up? It is very American of me, I suppose, I to WANT IT ALL.
