Happy Wii Day!

William has wanted a Nintendo Wii for YEARS.  Ever since he first played one at my sister's house he's been hooked.  At first he was too young, then we didn't have a proper TV for it, then blah, blah, blah.  We just kept putting it off.  Well, William had decided  months ago to save his money for a Wii.  He has a large money jar and little by little it would fill up as he earned money or saved it from birthdays or grandparents.  Some of his chores include vacuuming the kitchen floor, unloading the dishwasher, cleaning his room, dusting, and helping with putting laundry away.  These go for 50 cents a job.  He has also done a couple of big ticket jobs like clean and vacuum the car (for 2 dollars).  Sean and I have also helped him out by putting loose change in his jar when he wasn't looking.

Well, today was the Day of Days!  William finally had enough to buy his Wii.  He was so proud.  Sean took him to the bank to change out his coins.  He made sure they went at a slow time so the tellers would be more cooperative.  He had over $50 in change alone!  Then they headed to the store so William could pick out the box and pay for it with his own money.  What a big guy!
Apparently the box was super heavy so William couldn't keep his smile going!
