Granted, I still think that today, but I also know that each season I have a small sense of anxiety as I anticipate the costs per kid per sport. Last year we wrote some savings tips for outdoor sports. This year we sought some outside help.

While dates are not necessarily mandated, we do enjoy giving small gifts to each other and especially to the kids.
