Really... it's that time again. Basketball and Baseball seasons are ready to roll, so this week we paid for:

3 day Baseball Camp.....$150

3 Basketball team sign ups.... $280

6 Baseball team sign ups... $785

(yes, I only have 4 boys; but 2 of them play on 2 teams... because SOMEONE doesn't now how to tell DADDY no-- but I'm going to work on that for next season!)

3 Pair of Basketball shoes... $430

4 Pairs of new cleats... $ (only) 225

REALLY... they need new shoes again? I just bought shoes... can't they just share? Nope, their sizes range from 12 men (not bad for an 11 year old... to a mere mens 6 for my 7 year old) .

Ahhhh... let the good times begin! And may my boys rememeber this when they go to put my in an old folks home in 50 years!!!

Oh goodness the sporting events are just around the corner....
I need to get some sleep so I can prepare for all the games I will be attending.
I hope you had a good New Years

Goodness! We only have one in sports right now, I don't even want to think about when all three of my boys are in. That's A LOT of money!!

I only have two boys I couldn't even think of the cost of two more in sports. Holy jeepers batman!

I just posted the other day how lucky I was to find a pair of track shoes at the outlet mall on the clearance rack that fit my son. I was so happy because they are normally 100. something.

I feel for you, ugh.

I can hear you!!!! I only have 2 playing sports now but the expense is unbelievable. My little guy is going to Cooperstown Dream park this June and that alone just for him is $1000. We then had to get lodging for the family $895 in a campground. We still need equipment for the season, pay for the leage play too. This is only one kids. Oh well busy boys are good boys. I always think that when they are grown we will wish for these days back.
