Momma to 8 y.o. DS and 5 y.o. DD. Married to a Maker!
When you say you do one activity at a time, are the activities seasonal so your child does more than one during the year?

Kelly,newly single mom of four wonderful children.
In your situation, I wouldn't sign up for anything but karate at this time.
I'd only do soccer if she'd agree to drop karate and it sounds like she probably would stick with karate if given the choice.
Skating and swimming are two things that can normally be taught by a parent so I'd try and make it a habit of going to the pool and the rink regularly. Should be enough to develop some skill at both (or at least a certain level of comfort that would allow her to pick it up quickly when she's older).
Music, I'm not sure. Personally, I wouldn't want to combine it with something that's taking as much of your time as karate is. It would be fine with something that's a once a week thing. Realistically with music, the daily practice is what makes it challenging time-wise.
