Today I took Spencer in to start his savings account. I’m not entirely sure how — but the kid had TWENTY EIGHT bucks. And at 6, well — that’s a pretty amazing task!
He went in with his giant bag of quarters so proud to the new account person. They were really nice. I even added 100 for him, just for good measure. 🙂
I wonder how many kids they get coming in starting savings accounts.
They asked him what he was saving for. He just stared at them and said college. Like — what else is there to save for. I reminded him it may also be for his mission, and he said, “Oh yeah, or a mission.”
Planning ahead is such a Herculean task. It’s so hard to see what MIGHT be in front of you.
But it’s such an important part of life.
In other news, my wedding ring really truly now is in my safe deposit box. See you in a year or so my little friend. I will miss you.
