Photo of the Day February 7th

Today was a big day for our young lady - we took her to the bank to open her first bank account. The lead-up was lots of fun... emptying one of her piggy banks, separating all the different kinds of coins, and counting them up. It was a good lesson in how money works too, as we talked about how a nickle is worth 5 pennies, a dime is worth 10 pennies or 2 nickles, and so on. Sophie, shown here with her purse full of coins at the teller's desk, did great at the bank. I had to raise an eyebrow when she was asked what she was saving her money for and her answer was "toys" (because we don't have enough???)
