that's a lot of money!

over the summer little man saw a lego set ($49.99) he wanted to buy. correction, he wanted ME to buy. i mentioned that he had a birthday and christmas in december and we could put it on his list, OR he could do chores and earn the money for it. since he wanted it before christmas he opted for the chores. there are things our children do around the house because they are part of the family ~ make up beds, clean their rooms, put away laundry. they can earn money for things over and above that. he worked hard for six months... even doing chores for my parents while at the lake this summer. he earned a total of $45. john david and i had told him that we would gift him the remaining $5 if he earned the rest. here he is with his creation...

the best part was while walking to the cash register, jd reminded little man of a $20 gift card from his previous birthday that he could use towards the purchase. he was excited to be able to keep some of his money.
