Just got back from the annual sports swap meet.

We got: soccer shin pads, soccer cleats, tennis racquet, roller blade wrist guards, hockey socks & jersey & shorts....for...$35!

Yay. We weren't prepared for adult stuff to be there and I need some hockey pants. But DH is the kind of guy that can't do things on the fly like that. As I started looking, I got "we aren't here for that."

But it cost $650 for the league fees and we'll probably need extra skating too. Then DS2 needs to take ball hockey and dance lesson...

and so the financial burden of sports BEGINS!!!!!!!!!

Woohoo!  It always amazes me (not in a good way!) how expensive it is for kids to participate in sports these days. Gotta save where you can for sure!!!
