Decisions

Hey Babe,

It’s January and as usual, the weather is weird. Yesterday, it snowed 10cm and then freezing rain and now it is 5C. The weather has been freezing, and then rises up again. Weird.

Your OJYO took a break for Christmas. I’m parent rep this year, remember? So much work. And I do love it. Actually, I don’t love the work, but I love the music and I love encouraging the kids.

This year, you have played/are playing: Berlioz, Unter Donner und Blitz, Firebird Suite, Samson and Delilah, the Barber of Seville, Beethoven’s 8th… and you’ve joined the Parkdale United Church Orchestra on Tuesday nights’.  Crazy.

You’re at a new gymnastics club, too. The coaches from the previous one left, and we managed to track down your coach and it turns out they opened a club in CP.  You’re now going 3x a week. The coach wants you to go 4x a week. But they are about to move to Kanata.  Which means driving into town…5x a week. And we live an hour away.

I have absolutely no idea what to do.  I want to encourage your growth, to give you as many opportunities as possible. But I don’t think we can do that much driving.  Especially since we are insane enough to get two puppies in 3 weeks.

 

Please know that we are struggling with this.

I love you, Mister.
