I'm a soccer mom, figure skating mom, and hockey mom, as well as a student!!

Jordan started play soccer this year for school. His team has played 7 games and we have won 6 games, placing us in second place. Now Sunday we go to play offs against the bracket B's second place team! Let's go bulldogs. Now he wants us to sign him up for the Jan. Team hoping I can save up the money for it they are asking $105 for 8 weeks of play time. Love that my kids are in sports but my pocket book doesn't like it so much. Tristan has started hockey this year as well and that gear is $$$$ and Zaleen is in figure skating. And I start school in Jan. And will be full time going in to get my RN or LPN, so I can work in a nursing home. And come Feb. I get Sophia into a dancing class:)

      Sounds like a lot of activities for all your kiddos. The expense is part of the reason we have stayed away from organized sports. We just gave our 11 year old Tae Kwon Do lessons for his birthday.

        We are and its not all that bad in money if I hit up the used sale that they have once a year picked up hockey shin pads, hockey gloves, and hockey elbow pads for 16$ new would of been 80$ and his aunt on his dad side found pants, shoulder pads, shin pads, and a helmet in a garage sale. To bad Rockford doesn't have that kinds of sale for figure skating and soccer lol that would make it so much easier. And Rockford has a financial assistance for the park district programs so I get 75% off the price of them. I think the most expensive thing so far is the ice skates for 250$$ ++++
