I hope that our children can learn from our mistakes. We are not savers & we are in debt. I don't want my children to be like that so I am trying to encourage them to save their money when they want to buy something. A few months ago, Cheney decided he wanted to buy a laptop. He talked it over with us & we agreed that it was a great idea. So, he told everyone & got $$ for his birthday. He also picked up limbs for MeMe & Pop, stamped envelopes for Mid Tex Propane, did extra chores around the house, & conned us out of many dollar bills!! Last week, he announced that he finally had a little over $500!! WOW!! Sunday afternoon, we went shopping.
Chandler decided that she wants to buy a computer....she already has over $100 saved so she is on her way.
When his Daddy agreed to let him buy a computer, the deal was he had to have enough for the computer, taxes, & the case. Daddy agreed to pay for the extended warranty.
Waiting for his total.....
Cheney!! I am so proud of you!! You have done something that your Daddy & I have struggled with our whole lives. You decided what you wanted & saved your money to buy it. I hope you continue doing this the rest of your life. You will definitely be blessed!! Daddy & I love you so much!!
