Earning money!!!

This week we’ve had the chance to help mum out at the warehouse and earn some money. Mum wrote chores on the board, with how much she was willing to pay for them, so we could select which ones we wanted to do.

Rafa worked hard on Monday – taking the most valuable chores on the list and earning $4.

But then the rest of the week he decided that even though he was very interested in earning money, he wasn’t so interested in the chores.

That left more chores for me! I’ve pocketed $14 this week! Making mum coffee, printing labels and stamping boxes were my favorite tasks.

#16 Hang out at the mall!

We also had money from recently selling some of our old toys we were allowed to spend that cash on anything we wanted. We did a heap of window shopping before agreeing we could combine our money to get the special offer at Build a Bear while being within our budget.

We both knew which ‘bear’ we wanted immediately – unfortunately that meant no money left over for the Storm Trooper outfit for Toothless or the shoes and roller skates for my kitty cat.

Making them was so much fun – we stuffed them, kissed their heart and sewed them up.

Then for their birth certificates – to make it all official.

Meet Nicholas Toothless and Snowflake Kitty Cat.

We even got a gift certificate to come back for the outfits we picked out. Mum said we could work in her warehouse to save up for them, and helped me do the math on how many hours I’d need to work.

Snowflake might have to learn how to piggy back on my bike.

Hill Country Vacation

July 23, 2017

We all agreed that the tube slides were the trip highlight – with the lazy river and beach a close second. We also enjoyed the kids night out because we got to order whatever we wanted for dinner (including juice and dessert) and play games with other kids.

This is how we roll

CCR Rocks

July 2, 2017

Today we painted some rocks for the neighborhood rocks club. We hid them in the park on the way to the pool this afternoon and upon inspection after our swim one had already been found!

We haven’t found any from anyone else yet – maybe we need to look harder.
