Things change greatly with kids.

You have a child you love and has some athletic skills. They have a couple best friends playing ball and you want to keep them pointed as far in the right direction as you can. And that $1500 tis but a scratch in the cost of a kid...

We gave everything we could, and expected them to do their absolute best they could. We enjoyed watching them play soccer/basketball ( High school and travel -soccer, hoops, swimming) from 1991 through 2014. Five kids will do that. I did not miss one game in all that time.

Will also say that when that last child decided she did not want to play sports her last 2 years of high school I was more than happy to let it all go! Thousands of practices, hundreds of games, tens of thousands of miles driving...

Now they are all grown and married and fully employed and making more than my wife and I, so we consider it the right call.
