Eli's not in any. We've got too much on our plates with his sister's sports. I'll probably spend $3000 on Daryn's softball fees, equipment, uniform and travel this year. Another $700 plus travel if she goes to softball camp. I don't feel too bad about Eli, he'll have his turn. I'll probably sign him up for play gym or kiddie indoor soccer this year.

Major isn't yet either. We aren't starting him in anything until he is 4 I think. T-ball is the only thing I've really looked into and it ranges from $95-$160 per season, depending on which league you join.

Connor isn't doing anything besides preschool right now. We will start swimming lessons soon, but they're cheap! $40 for 10 lessons.

We mostly do things like museums, the aquarium, park, etc that are really cheap if you're a member. There are a lot of free one time events around here too. Like this Saturday they're going to do a snow event in the park that's free. I figured he gets a ton out of those activities without doing an actual class.

He's getting ready to do his very first class---indoor swimming lessons----it's $55 for 6weeks (2x a week).

He'll continue the same swimming lessons this summer, but outdoor lessons and the price will drop to $25 for the same amount of lessons.

I won't put him in anything else until he's 4ish?????

I was gungho with lessons with my first kid, but by the 3rd it's all about juggling/time management and getting everyone everywhere, so I know he'll be quite ok without team sports/lessons for awhile.

He'll probably want to do gymnastics, because he sees Ava and Lucas in their gymnastic classes and he wants to do it too.

Up until Jan 1st, he was enrolled in Tumble Bus. It was a "gymnastics" class that came to him, at his daycare. She drove a big, gutted bus, with tumbling stuff in it (pads, trampoline, balance beam, etc...hence the name "Tumble Bus"). He really liked it. It was only $35 a month (so cheap!). He had a 45 minutes long class, once a week.

Right now, he isn't enrolled in anything. I'm going to sign him up for swim lessons soon - its 2x a week (Mon & Wed or Tues & Thurs), 1 hour classes, $70 a month.

Chase isn't in anything right now. I think I will sign him up for soccer this summer. I'm pretty sure the 3's play 2x a week for 4 weeks and it's $35, I think.

Not in any classes yet. We barely have time as it is now and can't imagine what it's going to be like with a second baby.

If she asks later or shows interest in something, we'd consider it. Would love for her to learn a music intrusment but wouldn't force her to take any classes she doesn't want.

Audrey has been in swim for 6 months but next week is her last lesson since we're moving. It's expensive! $70 for 30 min lessons once a week. She will probably start something else like dance or gymnastics after we move.

The twins usually do soccer or t-ball thru parks and recs. I think it's like $60 for 5 or 6 weeks. I'm not sure cause we just pay half and their mom sets everything up.

Nothing they..We looked into dance class but it conflicts with Derricks work & school schedule & we haven't bought another car yet so we'll wait until we have 2 cars.

Izzy's swimming is the same, $55 for twice a week for 6 weeks.

We just signed her up for gymnastics at a private club and it was really reasonable. $140 for 12 weeks of classes. She starts in April. I'm excited for her to start! I was a gymnast and I hope she loves it like I do/did. I started at 3 as well.

I pay between $25 and $250 per entry fee for pageants not including clothes. She's going to start cheering in the fall and I'm not sure what that'll cost but they normally do fundraisers to pay for everything for the girls.
My boys play baseball and entry fee was $40 for both. We haven't ordered uniforms yet.

Harrison is playing T-ball this year. It is SUPPOSED to be for mainly 5-6. But he is totally ready. I asked them what the age was and they said up to 6... so I said he is only 3. They said if he is ready, I just have to be at the practices Braylon will be on the same team. It was $60 for both of them, so $30 each. When he is 4 I am going to enroll them in Karate. Oh the baseball includes their uniform also. They play the whole month of May and June. 2-3 times a week.
