Mom, keeper of the family calendars

It's that time of the year again where I go researching classes for TG.  We're not like other parents in our nabe who block each day for another class.  We think it's important to allow her to have unstructured time now.  Still, I try to enroll in at least one class a semester to try something new and to learn socialization in different environments.
We're also hitting the point were the classes are getting to be longer and more expensive and less parent participatory.
I've narrowed the potential class to three choices this semester but it's a bit hard to decide.  DH's schedule and my schedule are a bit hectic this summer and the classes are not local so we need to allot for travel time.
Another issue is the semesters are getting longer which I don't feel is necessary at this age but apparently most do.
20 weeks is a long time committment for a 3 year old.
Honestly, we juggle one class a semester.  Some parents here juggle a different class every other day.  How the heck do they do that?
