On Thursday, our family attended an informal concert for my son's school. To be honest, when we got the note home about this "additional concert," I was like "Oh great. Another committment." I had to pick up my son by 2:30 (because he cannot get off the bus w/o his sisters and/or w/o mom at home), and bring him to my 3:00 tutoring at the other campus. At 4:15, I loaded my 3 kids (the girls had Rosary Club after school) plus 3 additional to get Subway for supper. Back at the gym before 5:00 for volleyball pictures & practice. The other mom was bringing my oldest to the concert after the pictures and practice. I went home to eat (gave up fast food/restaurant for lent) with two. My husband got off the plane and got home just in time to leave for the program. Met up with the oldest--so all five of us were seated in the pew and ready for the performance by 6:45. Deep breath.
