CSCA*: Week 4—Sports Week!

* Camp Stimey Coming Attractions!

We're going old school this week and doing straight up sports at Camp Stimey.

So here's what we'll be doing this week: Jack will go to school, Quinn will play in the sandbox, and Sam will force me to play sports with him.

I'm entirely serious.

We have a bunch of errands to run this week, a lot of appointments, and not a lot of extra time.

I'm going to try to fit in a lot of sporty-type activities though. Sam's been dying to play "real golf" so maybe I'll try to take them to a driving range. (What could possibly go wrong?) We'll be doing our regular soccer playgroup that we do each week with WhyMommy, Tech Savvy Mama, and some other friends. We'll be waiting for the dryer repairman to come while we play baseball in the backyard. Maybe I'll force Sam to learn to ride his bike.


I may even attempt to teach Sam what the actual rules of some of the games are.

We will be having a basketball/playground Camp Stimey meet-up on Friday morning. Email if you're interested in coming (stimeyland at gmail dot com). Jack won't be there. (mommyguiltmommyguiltmommyguiltmommyguilt mommyguiltmommyguiltmommyguilt) Edited to Add: My Friday afternoon thing was switched to Monday, so I think our meet-up will be in the afternoon so Jack can come.

Also, we're hopefully going to a Washington Mystics game on Saturday. I can't wait to show my three little men that girls can play pro sports too.

  1. Our "camp" over here isn't going as well as I hoped either! I thought we'd be able to do a whole bunch of stuff with playgroups, library events, etc... but for July I'm babystting an extra boy, who has to be picked up from summer school at 11:15 and who has very little interest in any of the activities we do. :( I guess you just gotta do what you can and make the most of it, right?

  2. "What could possibly go wrong?" I can't wait to hear!

  3. I will try to do the meetup this week, but if I end up leaving for BlogHer on Sunday I might be frantic by then.

  4. Hey, you can't keep everyone home because one child isn't there, right? Whattayagonna do?

    I am hoping to get a field trip in this week, and Friday is really our only option, so we might be able to do it! Where are you going? We could maybe go there for awhile and then continue on to the indoor water park afterwards. I am DYING to get out of town. I literally haven't left general town area in a month.

  5. I'm impressed that you are so organized! My son has two more weeks of all-day camp, but then I will start picking him up at 1:30 again and need to get some activities/playdates lined up!

  6. GO CAMP STIMEY!!! That sounds like a camp theme that can be fit nicely around appointments. Awesome.

  8. Definitely need to add swimming - this is July in DC! Please schedule with your sitter - we'd love to take the little guys.

  9. The Mystics is totally where it's at! The crowd is generally filled with parents explaining the game, and the teenage girls cheer wildly - it's awesome to see.

    I have to hesitate a bit on the driving range thing. My husband occasionally tries to go to the driving range with me, and he has hit the ball so wildly that the people next to him have moved. It's freaking scary when the ball hits the divider between you and the person next to you. But, on a weekday, you should be fine. Hopefully.

  10. So glad we get to be part of Camp Stimey this week and we might join you on Friday morning. Will get the details at soccer!

  11. Instead of a driving range, how about a putting green?

  12. I've said it before and I'll say it again. You are one terrific mother.
