I signed his permission slip on Monday night and sent it back to school with him. On Wednesday night, our family was in the car, and Corey and I were discussing the field trip. He asked me if we had paid the teacher yet (it was a $10.00 admission fee.) I told him, "Not yet. I was kind of hoping Carrick would pay for it with his Fun Dollars." I was half joking when I said this.
Carrick heard our discussion and piped up incredulously from the back seat, "I am paying for it with my Fun Dollars!" as if I were talking crazy talk to imply that he wouldn't!

I don't know if I have ever been prouder of my son, volunteering to pay for his first field trip with his own Fun Dollars. I must be doing something right...
Set aside New Year's Fun Dollars Gift Money- $7.00 (plus $3.00 to make it an even 10 from selling some kiddo stuff online.)
Balance this pay cycle- $0.00
