Holding up the bank
Yes, it has been almost a year since our last "crime" which brought law enforcement to our door, so we thought it was time for another dastardly act! This time the boys are "holding up banks." Aren't they the cutest little banks, too?! :-) You need to enlarge the picture and see the details on them. They are divided into three sections labeled church, bank, store. I first saw these in connection with Larry Burkett (I think.). Anyway, I have been trying to locate some ever since that time. You can imagine my excitement to find them for $2 each at a consignment sale! We had a great lesson today about money, and the boys had a blast dropping their stash into each part. Bless their little hearts, they were just as happy to load up the church section. It warmed my heart, and I am sure it did God's, too.

I tell my kids that story when the get too loud around here! LOL Works like a charm....

Love the banks. The other day after church Steven informed us he put 15 cents in the offering in Sunday School class. I was very proud of him as he did it on his own free will.

So glad the boys are learning about "finances" early in life. It will save them a great deal of heartache and embarrassment later. Love you all. -- Mom C

Wow, good find! Those are expensive brand new!! (I always think it's funny-maybe ironic is a better word- when financial organizations want to tell you how to get debt under control but offer all kinds of pricey books and gadgets to help you and they will gladly accept your credit card :)

I saw those banks and would love to get some for my boys. It's never too early to start stressing giving to God.
