We took the kids to a couple of family grave sites, visited DH's grandmother, then went to the mall. I figured it would be packed, but it was like a ghost town. I was surprised! I figured lots of folks would be out and about, but the highways were pretty dead, too.

DS has a Kindergarten party next week. Instead of asking the parents for donations of food, etc., they've asked for a $3 donation. DS paid for it out of his allowance, on his own accord. His teacher was just shocked!
DD #1 WILL NOT spend her money (4 y.o.). She pays her tithing, and is saving the rest for some flavor of Littlest Pet Shop toy. Good for her. She has a goal and that makes me happy.
I feel like it is really important to teach them about money now so that they will be better off than we are. I want the best for them, as most parents want for their children. And, for me, the best for them is a working knowledge of this world, and how to deal with life.
I thought I'd join my fellow bloggers and write that we, too, received our payment. It was also less than hoped for but I'll just be happy that we got it. After tithing, it will round out our EF, vacation fund and will buy a new mattress. Hooray!
