we are a military family, we live in a military town. in fact we have 10 military bases/posts in a 30 mile radius, so you could say that most of our community is military. so why is it that when school wants you to pay for something for the kids, or hold a school fair, or anything else really, they always ask for the money right in the middle of payday and it needs to be paid before you get paid again. my daughter has missed out on so many things because i didnt know to plan for it until it was to late. she never complains but i know she is sad that her friends go and she cant. i wish they would take into consideration the community and try to plan around that.
