A Word Problem

I thought I'd honor the first day of school with a word problem:

Jamie has 5 kids.  It is the first day of school and the afternoon looks intimidating. Jamie needs to allow 20 minutes to get from her house to town.  Here are the times her kids have to be places after noon today:
     Hays 12:00 School Starts, 2:25 School Ends, 5:30-6:30 Golf
     Maggie  2:20 School Ends, 4:00-5:30 Volleyball
     Tiki  1:30 School Ends, 5:15-7:30 Football
     Dax 3:35 School Ends, 5:15-7:30 Football
     Gabby  1:30 School Ends, 2:30-4:30 Tap
How can Jamie and the kids spend the least time in the car this afternoon?

Hehehehe.  That was fun.  I (heart) math!
