The children each had $1 that they wanted to spend at Walmart today. I told them that $1 couldn't buy very much but they could look and see if they could find anything. They made out pretty well actually.
Christian was very excited to find a recorder for $1.
And Lily of course wanted just what Christian had (I don't know how excited I am about it. Especially after listening to them play all afternoon!!!) Emelia really, really wanted a new ball and was quite vocal about it. They did not have pink or purple so she got orange.
Anthony was thrilled to find a package of 48 army men for $1. He spent quite some time having battles with them this afternoon. He wants to buy a set of different colored ones next time so he knows who is fighting who.
Nick and Alex bought a $2 pack of trading cards. Chelsea bought a song on iTunes. I didn't get their pictures.
I found some pants that the boys like to wear in the winter that are usually $8 on clearance for $1 a pair. So I bought 4 of them.
I think everyone was pleased with their dollar purchases.
