Oh, that's interesting- to break it down monthly. But I don't think i want to know...
I had to pay the camp down payment, which was $600. I do know we could not do camp, but it's a UU camp and we want them to have that experience. My 3 oldest go for one week each summer. We budget it, so it does not come as a surprise.
Music lessons for ds # 1-- $100/mo
Music lessons for ds # 2-- $60/mo
Could say no to music as well, but both boys are music 'freaks' and love to play.
Riding lessons (for the love of riding, not showing) for dd #1--$160/mo
DD# 2- Currently not in anything that involves payment:
Summer activies are not factored in, but they don't start until mid -july.
Organic food for a family of 6--At least $100/wk
Book fair- $44 (Buy one get one free- good deal)
Homeschool botany class - $5
2 driving lessons for teen- not sure yet. I think the whole series is $300.
Renew Aquarium membership- $ 93
Currently we have no $$ medical needs, but we have in the past.
we could not doing any of the above, which is an option. each family has to tweak the budget for those things which are important to them.
