We have had the busiest schedule in years. Mostly it is very rewarding and we've gotten all kinds of wonderful things out of it. My children are definitely becoming more confident and proficient in different areas and each area of confidence helps with the next thing. But lawsie! I'm about ready to commit some terrible crime whereby the only punishment would include lots of time in solitary confinement. Quiet. Meals served to me. No driving back and forth. No quibbling in the car. There's not many worse things than hurling down a freeway at a high rate of speed in a tin box with young people fighting and quarreling.
