• The Dutchinese Couple

      It *is* really sad, we were so disappointed that it was discontinued! Apparently, the reason cited for ending the tradition was “lack of interest”: http://www.620wtmj.com/blogs/genemueller/127451313.html

      The author of that article wonders if it’s because of club sports. It seems like in the Sheboygan area, getting your kids into good sports programs is the “in” thing. I’ve heard some people say it’s to an unhealthy level–parents pushing their kids to excel in sports as if that’s where their worth lies. I don’t live there anymore so I can’t make a personal evaluation, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. (Even when I did, being an athlete was what made you popular…the competition was fierce and sometimes, catty.)
