We have decided to start giving Jaden an allowance. It is up to him to decide how he wants to spend it. We started a few weeks ago, and he gets $1 every evening if he has done all of his chores WITHOUT fuss. This is so hard for Jaden to do. He did make some money, and he decided to save it for awhile, until yesterday! He bought the Scooby Doo board game! He loves it! He even counted his money out to the cashier. He said he wants to save it up again to buy a Scooby Video that he saw. I don't know how long it will take, but yesterday, he did all of his chores and this morning has started off well. It is exciting to see him learn about money and to see him decide to save! I wish I could learn that, LOL!
It has been so nice outside, so I plan on taking the kids for a walk today. I also plan on getting some Halloween decorations, and having Jaden help me decorate. I think he will like that!
Saturday, we will be in Indianapolis, going to a book party and doing a little window shopping! I hope the kids will enjoy that!
Sunday, we will go to the pumpkin patch , and pick out our pumpkins. This is something I look forward to all year! I can't wait!
Jeff's inventory is going on, so he is working a lot right now. He even has to work on Sunday, but only in the morning!
Have a great weekend everyone!
I will try to get some good pictures to post!
