We’re a little over a week into September and I think we are finally starting to get the hang of our new fall routine of school, after school activities and sports practices/games.
In the past, our weekends were pretty open and free of any scheduled events, but this year my son is playing soccer and my daughter doing both soccer and cheerleading so our Saturdays and Sundays are now spent traveling from one athletic field to another and rooting for our children’s teams!
My daughter’s schedule is the roughest. On Saturdays she has to be at the soccer field in full gear – complete with shin guards and cleats – by 9 am and after practice and a mini-game she has just enough time for a quick change into her cheerleading uniform and get to the next field in order to cheer on our town’s flag football team.
It’s no wonder with all that physical activity that she’ll come running over to me and tell me she’s hungry! Like any sports mom, I try to have some good snacks on hand for her, especially since she doesn’t have the time to sit down to eat a formal meal.
