Can you say, stupid?

My eldest daughter has school exams in June every year.

My youngest daughter has musical voice exams in June and dance exams in February.

So, I decided this year to have them both do their piano exams in August instead of June to kinda spread things out a bit.

We have now come home from our two week cottage vacation to spend two days doing the girl's piano exams.

Yeah.

I know, what was I thinking?

We won't be doing this again. Summer is no time for piano lessons or exams.

Sorry guys, Mom blew this one.

What can I say? It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Sigh.

Edited to add:
Yes, my kids are in too many activities and yes, they actually do practice and prepare without complaining and yes, I am INSANE. Thanks for asking.

  1. If it makes you feel any better, I put off eye exams for this month. Didn’t even cross my mind that you can’t get an appointment this close to school starting. I thought it was a good idea to wait til late summer…next year, maybe I will do it as soon as school gets out. Now we have to wait until next month and get evening appointments so that I don’t have to take them out during their second week of school. Oh well!

  2. Yes we are all a little insane. We had activities planned for our granddaughter for everyday of the week in August. I think we might want to check that list again.

  4. Wow, I can’t believe they have exams in those things. My kids have recitals or concerts, but not exams. I can’t even imagine fitting exams into the end of school year schedule with everything else.

  5. That sounds suspiciously like my last December. And quite possibly like the coming September. Still, it is worth all the craziness to be able to offer such opportunities to offspring. 🙂
