A friend recently asked on Facebook if anyone else had noticed a trend of kids’ activities being moved to Sundays.
We in fact have had two groups move many, if not all, of their meetings from weeknights to Sunday afternoons in the last two months. Girls Scouts has moved entirely to Sunday afternoons. (The leader asked if it was OK and everyone said yes.) And Boy Scouts is still meeting some during their week but also some on Sundays as well. (They also asked if it was OK.)
I wouldn’t participate in any activity on Sunday that was during church hours in the morning. I don’t mind the Sunday afternoon meetings too much. Since my husband is almost always home on Sundays I don’t have to drag all three children to the meetings. Also on Sundays he can help take their kids to the activities.
I hate having to rush through homework and dinner to do weeknight activities. So it has simplified our weeknights some.
My only objection is that sometimes it would be nice just to come from church and not have to go anywhere.
Do you see a trend toward Sunday games, meeting and activities for kids? If so, what do you think is spurring this trend?
How do you feel about Sunday activities? Does it make life simpler or cut into your weekends? Are you willing to meet on Sunday mornings? Would you mind Sunday afternoons?
