We stress in the letter that each family has to pick and choose what (if any) fundraising opportunities they will take part in. It helps a lot, because if there is a charity or fundraiser that is useful or near or dear to your family, you can save your resources for that. At this point in the game, three kids in school, my kiddos know we cannot possibly come close to participating in everything, so we pick and choose.

Mmmmm.... For Thin Mints only, I miss being a GG leader. DS came home on Friday and said someone in his class was selling them, andcould he have money. Yes, sir, you can!!!! But the cookies come home to mama! We only get the sandwich style and the Thin Mints in Canada, though, you lucky Americans and your Somoas.
Good idea about joining the PTO or council! We pick and choose too personally. Like sometimes I'll buy the silly wrapping paper because I know I'll use it and at least the money is going to school.

Oh yeah, and Edy's Ice Cream will make a GS Somoas ice cream I'm so ready for GS cookies again!
