Our listing went live last night, so things are in motion! I'm a planner, & the angst of not knowing what the next week will hold is...hard for me. ;-) Luckily, I've been plenty busy with the rest of my life, which is keeping me from overly obsessing about the next week or so with the beach house.
Sam has been to two soccer tryouts, both very different. He has two left (a total of three clubs, with one requiring two tryouts). Finding a good club is a mix of: finding a coach that's a fit, a team that needs a player for your position, and a club that has a team playing at a level that suits your skills. And, has fun/positive/collaborative team mates. Depending on which teams offer him a spot, he would like to prioritize a team where he will be at the bottom of the skill stack rank, because he'd really like to push himself to develop more. There's a lot to balance, so it's a bit of a roll of the dice.
I'm a person who is not a fan of change (M would laugh if he was reading this, because...it's very true), so I'm always impressed when one of the kids actively seeks out change, knowing it's a good thing for them. Who knows what will happen with the soccer tryouts, but Sam has recognized that his current situation isn't working for him, and is taking risks to improve that. There's a lesson there for me. ;-)
What else is new? Lots of work, eating dinners out of the freezer, and attempting to keep up with the house, the endless stack of laundry & the last few weeks of school. We are in the home stretch! Hurrah.
What about you? What's new in your world?
