minisnick is rocking rocket math (daily timed math problems)  got through all the addition and is just blazing through the subtraction.  I told him subtraction is easier than addition.  His daily goal has changed from needing 19 to 21 correct.  He has been getting in the upper 20s/lower 30s since starting subtraction.  as quickly as he is working through them I am not sure what will happen when he gets through the 17 or so remaining

So little J decided to show up early to the party. Born at 24 weeks gestation on January 24, 2018. weighing 1 lb 13 oz. Been a rough few weeks but he's fighting his way through every obstacle so far. Hoping to get home from the NICU in May. I think he's going to focus on Aerospace but we're still deciding lol.

anyone that has Comcast / xfinity using their new app which allows you to pause / turn off Wi-Fi to all the connected devices?

Its great passive aggressive parenting - like today is early release day and kids get home from school around 1:00 so I set it where the xbox, cant use the Wi-Fi until 4:30 ;)

I had to volunteer to coach mini-ble1's soccer team this spring because there had been no one else step up after one week. I've never played soccer and have an extremely basic understanding of the game, so I'm not looking forward to this. As long as the kids have fun I guess it will be worth it, but I'd like them to learn some. I do my best...

what age group?  i volunteered four years ago to coach and have been doing it ever since. The last time i played soccer was in fifth grade so i only had a basic understanding of the game.

He's in the 8 year old group. I've coached him in baseball and football and I'm completely comfortable with those because I played both of them for more than 10 years growing up, but soccer is the only popular sport that I've never played. I was the football player making fun of all the soccer players back in high school (all in good fun, they dished it out too).

FWIW, at 8 the kid start playing the game as opposed to just having organized daycare.  I applaud you for volunteering your time so the kids could have a team but you may want to recruit some asst coaches that are more familiar with the rules and the details of the game so they can get some early instructions.

Look for the a-hole parents that think their kid is the next Pele and tell them to help you out.

ask the parents if any are willing to help out as assistants. you might find some who would volunteer to be assistants and not head coach because they don't want that responsibility. I had one parent who was a former collegiate player who wanted to help but with his work schedule couldn't commit to being a head coach.  So he helped with the skills and drills.  but he had a hard time throttling it back because he was used to the college level of intensity.  I had to constantly remind him they are 8 yo girls.

 

i had an a-hole parent who's kid was average(but seriously thought his kiddo was the all-star) and there is no way i would want his attitude on my coaching staff.
