Learning About Money

Monday night Daniel and the girls made banana bread from scratch for Home Ec. Danya and Gloria followed the recipe all by themselves! It came out very good. The whole house was filled with the delicious smell of fresh bread.

Danya and Gloria are growing up and learning to help with more and more household tasks. They also are interested in doing extra jobs to earn money. This week we created the "Elliott Bank" so that they could start a savings account. They designed the logo and helped me create a bank statement. They each deposited some of the money they'd saved from their allowances. They'll earn 5% interest each week on any money that they keep in the bank for a whole week. They also learned about compound interest which has them very excited.
