A house divided

Its no secret that we have 10 children. Its also no secret that we homeschool. What is a secret is the fact that McRush and I have different views on how we raise our children. No worries we always find a compromise.

One of the issues that came up recently, somewhat in passing conversation, was putting the children in extracurricular activities. Now, I am somewhat on the fence regarding this being a necessity of the #RushBunch for socialization purposes. I mean they have 9 siblings. But, another topic- another day.

McRush does not like the fact that everyone gets supper busy and schedules are all over the place. I, on the other hand, love it. Perhaps it’s my city life upbringing.

The girls have always been in ballet but now they want to separate. One stay in ballet and the other in gymnastics. The boys have never really settled on one thing although one had baseball and one had football. But now that the littles are getting older, they want to take part. We have karate, golf, tennis, piano, and we somehow have to figure out how to get Cam into Ninja Turtle training ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพ. That is not to mention my coaching clients and McRush’s Real Estate ventures. It really is a lot and we definitely will be stretching ourselves thin, McRush and I, but isn’t it worth it?

What do you think? Should we put every one in their thing at once or alternate? Drop your best advice in the comments. โ†“โ†“โ†“
