1. How to earn $$ honestly (We had chores and had to complete the chores correctly in order to get paid)
2. How to budget $$ (I was given a sum of money to purchase school clothes for the next school year - I was a penny pincher and made it last,and last and last)
3. How to cook dinner (We had a day a week that we had to cook for everyone else) Of course I started with chili dogs....I have gotten progressively better!
4. Family dinner time was required - we all had to be there and NO TV COULD BE ON IN ANY ROOM IN THE HOUSE.
Anyhow, this morning I put on a sweater that my Grandma crocheted for my Papa a whole lot of years ago -- if I had to guess I would say 25+ years old. My Grandma gave it to me awhile ago. I was SUPER proud to wear it to school. I told both my classes that my Grandma crocheted it for my Papa when he was alive. They were pretty amazed, because the sweater is more than twice as old as they are!
Thank you Grandma for all you have done for me! I love you!
