It's amazing the things we'll do for our kids to ensure their success. The upcoming movie The House make me think of some of those wild and crazy things. I can remember my parents dedicating HOURS upon hours helping me to sell and deliver Girl Scout cookies and school candy bars to raise funds for various activities. We've done the same for my four kids over the years—from Boy Scout popcorn, Girl Scout cookies, Boy Scout Christmas tree pick up—you name it. Gymnastics and dance recital hours and ski racing days logged. The hours and days accumulated are insurmountable, as is our love and desire to see our kids do well.
My oldest twin is a ski racer. That particular sport is not inexpensive and the hours are crazy. Each year during the winter holiday there is a training camp that runs for a week or so up at the mountain. This past year, my husband drove her every single day of camp and every Saturday all winter long—about 160 miles round trip, but over 90 minutes each direction without traffic. On a bad day? That drive home was 4 hours a couple of times with weather and accidents. Needless to say, it's some serious dedication. This year, I think we're renting a house for the week and a room for the season (although my husband thinks a small RV will suffice); we'll see who wins.
On June 30th, this house is open for business!
