We have 4 dc aged between 4 and 11 (soon to be 12). I am finding we spend very little time doing "sitting down" type activities. If we want to go out as a family it generally has to be something physical bike ride, walk etc. I just wondered what others did when they had a variety of age gaps?
As an example this is what we did today:
8.30 - 9 30 skate park (new in town and smaller ones wanted a go so went early before others got there. Bike/scootered down)
10 - 12 30 3 youngest helped load a trailer then played at friends whilst dh was helping friends dh. 11 yr old went back to skate park
12 30 - 14 00 family sit down lunch at ours with GP'S
14 00 - 15 00 dc went to gp's farm and helped with milking
15 30 - 17 30 went on a long walk in woods with friends
18 30 - 20 00 watched film with small 3. 11 yr old had cricket match.
On the plus side they end the day exhausted but I don't feel we ever sit still!

I don't suppose you ever will sit still with four dc, not until the youngest is 18 at least! grin

I also have 4dc - 10, 9, 5 and 11 months. Our days are pretty much the same as yours just depends what we have going on.
Dcs have got activities football, dance, athletics so nearly every evening we're at one of these.
Weekends depend again on dcs activities, if they have parties or if I'm working.
Think it's just life with 4 dcs

Following as we're just behind you, 4DC aged 2-9.

If we are home, it starts well then descends into at least 2 mass brawls. I spend most of my days tearing my hair out.

Yours sound most impressive!
